Last updated October 30, 2014. It might be expected that Schlitt-known for decades as the frontman for the hard-rocking Petra-would go for pomp and bombast on an album like this. Instead, he favors a more nuanced approach in his treatments of O Holy Night, What Child Is This, and similar Yuletide favorites. Clearly a labor of love, The Christmas Project is an unexpected treat that holds appeal beyond Christian poprock fandom. The Christmas Project John Schlitt. Christian & Gospel. Christmas outings are, by their very nature, pretty dicey propositions. On the one hand, given that their material itself is almost inevitably tied to so many deeply-seated recollections of the average listener's holidays past, if an artist goes too far afield when rendering these dearly-beloved songs of yore, they stand in danger of running roughshod over the delicate sensibilities of all but the staunchest members of the fan base. While it is debatable which method is inherently more risky, Petra front man John Schlitt, for the most part, has opted to take the latter route, hewing fairly faithfully to the renditions of these time-honored chestnuts most of us grew up with.
