How Snowy White Is Your Valley?

Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins has defied the conventional music industry wisdom and become a mainstream star despite the fact that she is a mezzo-soprano. Operatic voices like hers don't normally have crossover appeal but her universality is unquestionable. Taking classical to masses was probably kick-started by Pavarotti but Jenkins gives every indication of carrying his torch. While it took until 2012 for Katherine to record a Christmas album her seasonal activity began as far back as 2005 when she travelled to Iraq over Christmas to entertain the British troops during the conflict there. On the occasion of her first major acting role she appeared in the Christmas episode of BBC TV series 'Doctor Who' called 'A Christmas Carol'.

But it was 'This is Christmas' (released as 'My Christmas' in the UK), released in the run up to the season in 2012, that truly announced Jenkins as an artist who could mix it with the Christmas greats. This 10-track work had plenty of familiarity, mostly religious in nature, in the shape of 'Away In A Manger', 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)' and 'Deck the Halls' but there are some lesser known gems to add plenty of balance. Chief amongst them is 'Sleep Quietly My Jesus' which brings with it a sense of refined drama, something that you might not expect for a season such as Christmas.

'I Wish You Christmas' is another little heard delight and with the understated orchestral parts the Welsh singer evokes a quieter yuletide experience. Jenkins also tackles old time carol 'In Dulci Jubilo' which Mike Oldfield took to the masses in the eighties. Whereas Oldfield’s version was fully instrumental that took its inspiration from its origins in the Middle Ages Jenkins adds her singing parts to give the recital a good deal more depth.

For the most part Katherine has the stage to herself on 'This Is Christmas' but on 'Come What May' (we'll leave aside the fact that it is hardly a Christmas song) she was joined by Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo. Throughout the album Jenkins singing is bolstered by Sally Herbert's wonderful orchestra who judge matters perfectly, lending balance to the star of the show but stepping up to mark to sumptuously fill in the gaps. The UK version of Jenkis album was released a couple of weeks after the US version and was embellished by 4 extra tracks, 'Ding Dong Merrily On High', 'Angels from the Realms of Glory', 'Wexford Carol' and a duet with Nathan Pacheco on 'O Holy Night'.
