The holiday season conjures up and paints iconic images like snow covered window panes and stockings by the chimney fire or if you’re in Los Angeles, buying Christmas trees in seventy degree weather; however, nothing truly captures the image of the holidays like a lovely holiday soundtrack like The Carpenter’s “Christmas Portrait.”
The Carpenters: Merry Christmas, Darling
With the lovely, sweet and ethereal vocals of Karen Carpenter and soothing piano music performed by Richard Carpenter, it is no wonder the talented and dynamic duo is capable of crafting the most beloved Christmas songs for the most celebrated holiday season.
By recreating their own renditions of timeless classics and also crafting their own delightful 70’s Christmas songs, The Carpenters have been known for performing some of the most cherished Christmas songs of their time such as classic hits “Merry Christmas, Darling” and “The Christmas Song” that have delighted people from all ages for decades.
“Christmas Portrait” features a range of heart rendering 70’s love songs to ring true to the holiday season most responsible for making people fall in love. Reminiscent of some of their classic hits like “We’ve Only Just Begun” and “Close To You,” “Christmas Portrait” offers the same type of musicality of these hits, but specifically made to enjoy for the holidays. No album can quite encapsulate the holiday season with as much heart and smoothness as “Christmas Portrait.”
Being the only Christmas Album christened with the presence of Karen Carpenter’s vocals, it has become iconic and a mainstay in Christmas play lists.
This vocal and instrumental duo were iconic in the 70’s and their delightful music has a timeless quality that can still transition to current times and be labelled a classic and considered an album of historical significance.
If you would like soothing, sensitive and lovely holiday music to accompany your holiday experience, the Carpenters’ “Christmas Portrait” is the ideal soundtrack to listen to as you exchange gifts with loved ones and participate in all the holiday festivities the season has to offer.
According to Radio Santa, Nothing truly communicates the spirit of the holiday season like The Carpenters’ first Christmas Album entitled “Christmas Portrait.”
