A Treasury of Songs For The Season
There was a time before the commercialization of Christmas. A time lit
with candles and firelight, when tapestries kept the cold from coming
through the stone, and folk would gather during the longest nights of
the year to sing songs of hope and light. This recording was made to
recapture that time and bring forward the ancient and genuine spirit of
Christmas into this modern time.
I wanted to make a CD with songs that predated the commercialization of
Christmas. Melodies that are 200, 300, 400, 800 years old. A CD with
deep spiritual roots, and a sound that feels right now, full of
inspiration and improvisation. Eric Robert and I went into the studio
with Grammy award-winning bassist Garey Shelton and these ancient
melodies—some of which will be familiar, and some that I am sure
will become new favorites—and we followed our own path. The result
really is magical.
"The album is entirely instrumental, creating an ethereal mood that is soothing and reflective. It's the perfect CD for the wee hours of Christmas morning, long after the fire has faded to embers."
