Christmas Music Review: Garth Brooks: Beyond the Season (1993)

In this CD Garth Brooks includes a very special song, "Unto You This Night."  There is something in country music and its ability to tell a story with lots of emotion.  This is one of those songs.  It is beautiful.  There is also a very good rendition of "The Friendly Beasts."  It has a different singer on each verse.  Brooks goes humorous in singing "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy."  "Silent Night" is a great sing-along song, and it is performed with a great deal of reverence.  "Mary's Dream" is a short instrumental, violin and piano, interlude that really sets a good mood.  "What Child Is This" is the concluding number.
