They have amassed glowing reviews, a dozen CDs and a loyal following. Their lighthearted songs and playful lyrics — with titles such as "Jesus Shaves" and "Piggy Mask" — are humorous takes on everything from married men to wool sweaters. They joke that writing complex, difficult harmonies is a good way to get out their sibling aggressions. And they say you don't have to close your eyes when you sing — but it helps: "When you can see, your sight gets in the way of your hearing," they say.
During the holidays, The Roches join forces with their brother, David, and percussionist Marlon Cherry. They perform favorites from their long musical career as well as songs from their Christmas album, We Three Kings. Your purchase helps support NPR programming.

The story on their family group spurred me to immediately place an order for the CD. We have enjoyed the rich collection of unique takes on classic tunes during the holiday season and whenever we needed to be reminded of the season. This is our second copy so my wife and I can have one in each car.
Their remarkable blend of voices is wonderful and the arrangements inventive. The thing we love the best is that it's obvious that they are having fun singing together. Their joy is palpable and contagious - perfect for our favorite time of the year. If you get excited at the Christmas season and enjoy the emotions good holiday music brings, this is the CD for you. I can't recommend this CD enough - buy it, you'll thank me later.
I've lost count of how many I've bought and given as gifts. This may be the last one because the person I'm giving it to still plays CDs. I've moved on to Spotify. This is among my favorite CDs of all time. Everyone I've given it too sends accolades for how lovely it is.
This music is moving, happy, transcendent. It's unlike any other holiday music I've heard. These women are so gifted and ebullient and their knowledge of vocal techniques is impressive.
I highly recommend this if you're interested to hear uplifting music. One person found this helpful. There are Christmas albums with a few better songs, I guess, but this CD has a lot of music on it and everything is very good.
This was a gift for a friend, I bought the original when it was selected as Best Christmas Album by Stereo Review, a magazine that no longer exists. The music is sung in several different styles, some very serious and some humorous. Every year I get more disillusioned about Christmas, Album), and swear I'm going to sit this one out.
I normally can't stand the schlocky holiday music that bombards you from all directions, and the decorations in the stores that get put up earlier every year. All I have to do is put on this CD, and suddenly my heart melts becomes its regular sizeand I'm grinning from ear to ear and moving cheerfully through my chores, feeling that there's something worthwhile about the season.
Used to play it in my car every year during my mile trek to be with Album) family, and it would keep me awake, as I sang along or howled along with the harmonies.
This CD has probably saved my life. The funny songs are cute. Out of 24 tracks, I love about I own no other holiday album -- but this one I listen to over and over, year after year. The effect is intentionally silly and lots of fun. When they do it here, however, you see that their tightly woven harmonies are just amazing and you really appreciate the song for its own pure beauty. There's a lot more here than Handel.
Everything here is superb in terms of musicality and their amazing sisterly braiding of harmonies. Particular stand-outs, however, include a snappy and energetic rendition of "Sleigh Ride," which they perform a cappella as they do much of the other work here ; "The Holly and the Ivy," which has The Roches - We Three Kings (CD weaving, dreamy quality to it; "Frosty the Snowman," on which the sisters use thick New Joisey accents and a boisterous chorus of little kids to dust this chestnut with new life; "Winter Wonderland," on which they use the same New Joisey accents to great effect again, while never abandoning their crystalline harmonies; and "Adeste Fideles," on which they carol in both English and Latin.
There are also a couple of new songs here, both of which were written by the Roches. The only song on here that really falls flat is "The Little Drummer Boy. Still, this one The Roches - We Three Kings (CD disappointment is nothing compared to the chockablock treasures you'll find in every other song. This CD is a must-have modern classic for any lover of either the Roches or Christmas music.
