Commenting about the reason she puts in an orchestra and choirs for her upcoming Christmas album, Faith said, "I had a very clear vision for the type of Christmas album that I wanted to make, indicative of the big band orchestras of the '40s and '50s, with a full complement of horns, strings, woodwinds, percussion and chorales."
Moreover, shouting her praise to David's orchestration the singer stated, "David's orchestrations were a gift. They embodied everything that I could have imagined -- unique and beautiful, and yet they seem as though they were always intended for these songs."
