I honestly am in love with Tarja’s “From Spirits and Ghosts” album, which I got as a Christmas gift. Her voice is amazing as always…and the music, orchestra, choir…breathtakingly beautiful! That woman is a true artist!
I only just got a chance to hear From Spirits and Ghosts (both the album and the “dark versions” EP) and I honestly have to say it’s one of the most amazing Christmas albums I’ve ever heard. Her versions of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is honestly the most amazing version that I’ve heard (and I’ve heard a lot of Christmas music, over the years).
I only consider Celine Dion’s These Are Special Times to be the most superior holiday record of all time. Tarja’s is a very close second, so she’s in good company, in my book.
