According to Metacritic, A Christmas Cornucopia has so far been met with “generally favourable reviews”. Ian Wade of BBC Music gave the album a very positive review, saying “this collection could find itself becoming as much a part of the holiday season as arguments with loved ones.” Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine awarded the album 3.5/5 and said “Lennox seems more inspired on A Christmas Cornucopia than she has in years.” John Hunt of Qatar Today magazine gave the album 9/10 and said “in particular, the vocal work and musical arrangement of ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ are impactful to the point of being intimidating.”
