One of the last truly entertaining Christmas specials.
10 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

ABC-TV's "The Sound of Christmas" is one of the last truly entertaining holiday specials. The stars shine, in particular Julie Andrews, with each performing musical numbers tailored for the vocal talents. Shot entirely in Austria utilizing locales featured in "The Sound of Music," the special is truly a visual and musical gem. Miss Andrews looks and sounds terrific. Her wardrobe is tasteful and flattering especially the silver lame show stopper she wears in the fantasy sequence. Surprisingly, the rapport between Placido and John Denver seems genuine and John's duet with Julie on "Edleweiss" is a joy. Other musical highlights include Placido's "Ave Maria," his duet with Julie on "Something New in My Life," the King Singers with Julie on "A Christmas Fantasy" and "The Twelve Days of Christmas," plus Julie's solos on "In the Bleek Midwinter" and "The Sound of Christmas."

"The Sound of Christmas" won 5 Emmy Awards.

ABC exercised their good taste in airing this special twice, originally in December, 1987 and again during the holiday season in 1989. Hopefully at some point "Julie Andrews: The Sound of Christmas" will be available on home video for all of us to enjoy over and over again.
