Wintersong by Sarah McLachlan
Released: Oct 2006
Label: Arista
Now that she's been extensively remixed and unplugged, it's fitting that Sarah McLachlan sets her hand to a holiday collection. With the plethora of predictable chestnuts like "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Silent Night," Wintersong might be added to the heap of adult contemporary stocking stuffers if not for the ghostly treatments by longtime producer Pierre Marchand. And though all the tunes benefit from her wounded warble, the simple, piano-driven interpretations of "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "Christmastime Is Here" make up the record's most intimate moments.
