This festive compilation from Putumayo covers a variety of French and French-Canadian Christmas songs beginning with the classic sounds of Jacqueline François ("Noël Blanc"), Charles Trénet ("Chanson Pour Noël), and Line Renaud ("Étoile des Neiges"). After setting a cheerful and easy mood, the collection shifts to more contemporary fare with a number of jazz and folk-oriented songs by artists like Canadian singer/actress Lina Boudreau and French-American singer Francesca Blanchard. ~ Timothy Monger
