Can anyone recommend holiday music on SACD or DVD-A ?
I believe there is a Christmas album by The Three Tenors on Super Audio via Sony.
Silverline has several Christmas titles:
Scroll down to "seasons".
Silverline's releases can sound very good. I have their "Inside the Music: New Age" and Dishwalla discs that sound great.
DTS also sells some:
And Handel's "Messiah":
William Ackerman on the Windham Hill label has recorded several holiday albums (including one for Turkey Day) titled "Winter Solstice". These are CDs but they have really beautful Christmas music on them. 90% of the tracks aren't the normal "standards" (which is kind of good!) but are from way back or are modern compositions. Many of the songs put me in a much more introspective mood as far as what Christmas is all about compared to the jingly-type ones we always hear. And as a side benefit, Windham Hill's stuff has excellent sound quality. Great for testing speakers! scroll down to "compilations":
I'm at work right now so I'm going from memory. Last year I got several dvd-a discs for xmas. The Nutcracker and Big Band Christmas were very good, as was one with the London Symphony (I think?) called something like Classic Christmas????
Mannheim Steamroller has a Christmas DVD in DTS
Anthony, Sony has released a Manhattan Transfer Christmas album on SACD. I don't own it, so I can't comment on the performance or sound quality. You should be able to find this SACD at Best Buy for $16.99.
