Julie Andrews' Greatest Christmas Songs goes above and beyond its title, combining holiday favorites such as "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem," "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen," and "The Bells of Christmas" from her 1966 Christmas album with standards such as "Cheek to Cheek" and "Falling in Love With Love" from 1958's Julie Andrews Sings. Regardless of where they came from originally, all of the selections show off Andrews' buoyant, graceful voice. Greatest Christmas Songs is worthwhile for Andrews fans as well as anyone dreaming of a nostalgic yet sophisticated Christmas. ~ Heather Phares
