    I will go with these two, although I like some of the other suggestions.

    Chris's album is excellent, IMO. Steve Hackett plays guitar on it, and the choir is excellent as well as Chris's voice. The end of the album has "Run WIth The Fox", which was recorded in 1981 with the choir mixed into it. I actually prefer the version without the choir, but it is still a very good song either way.

    For an even more contemporary album and group:

    Ok, I know Zooey Deschanel's voice is one of those love or hate voices, but I think she has a great voice, myself.

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:

    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\

    Caety's favorite Christmas album. I just happen to like near everything he puts out, so...

    I like that album too -- just a tremendously warm and intimate vibe; gorgeously recorded as well.

    Mr. Sumner's version of The Cherry Tree Carol (which is a truly weird and wacky take on the story of Mary & Joseph) is absolutely superb, IMO.

    If you really like that album, you might also really like this one :)
    My all-round personal favorite "Holiday Album" for the past decade or so -- and I am sure I already mentioned it before... but so what? ;)

    -- also sumptuously recorded.
    You can try before you buy:





    "It's like watching a roomful of people who couldn't get through college algebra discussing the flaws of quantum physics theory. I guess it could be fun, but it's ultimately a waste of time." -- seen on audiokarma

    "Some amps run on self bias, some amps run on fixed bias. But his amps run on confirmation bias." -- seen on audioasylum

    "Writing about hifi is like dancing about architecture" -- paraphrasing some wag (possibly Frank Zappa)
