On Christmas Night tries to stand out from traditional Christmas collections with the typical holiday songs by focusing on ancient and medieval tunes -- and comes up with a pleasant and warm compilation. Other than a few classic Christmas songs, the album features tracks like "See Amid the Winter's Snow," "Fantasia on Christmas Carols," "Shepherds, in the Fields Abiding," "Blessed Be That Maid Marie," and "Myn Lyking." ~ Gina Boldman
