I first heard Christmas songs when I was growing up in England in the 60s. They were such an important part of what made Christmas special for me, along with snow, Christmas trees and tinsel.
Most of these tunes are of European origin, When selecting tracks for this album, I leant towards those that were familiar to me from that time. These are new arrangements that explore the tunes while paying respect to the traditional melodies. This album comprises of 11 classic tunes as well as 3 newly composed songs.
And remember, as a wise, jolly, old man in a red suit once said “Christmas is only magical if you have a little bit of belief left from your childhood.”
I couldn’t agree more. Happy listening.
