Synopsis

Product Description
Using modern recording techniques (as of 1982), Mr. Ross has created from one to six parts for each of the pieces contained herein. Upon hearing this recording, the technical mastery of the guitar is noted and appreciated. However, what lingers the longest for the listener is the sweetness, sensitivity, and gentle good feeling of Mr. Ross's playing. Detailed notes on the origins of each of the Carols are included in the liner notes. The instruments used on this recording are a Martin 1934 000-18, a Mossman 1976 Great Plains, and a Mossman 1976 Flint Hills Custom. Revere Records is proud to offer these fine recordings in the hope that they become part of your Holiday background season after season.

My Favorite Christmas Album of Instrumental Music
12/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had never heard of Lewis Ross (after all, no huge media conglomerate is hawking his work), yet I bought this album when I heard a selection played at a music store. I have given copies to others, and even the finickiest person on my list seemed to genuinely enjoy these fresh renderings of timeless carols. Why? Ross understands that "less is more." He only uses steel string acoustic guitars. There is a slight country twang to the arrangements, but rest assured, fellow urbanites, it never reaches the point where you smell cows in the hay. The arrangements are intricate yet the overall effect is simplicity, an apt musical offering to a baby born in a wooden creche, the baby who grew to become a carpenter. The strumming of a wooden guitar is such a soothing antidote to the electronic buzz of holiday shopping. Because this collection is simple and heartfelt, it is one of those rare albums that never grows tiresome upon repeating. I'm not one given to exaggeration, but I think it's one of the greatest Christmas albums of all time."
A Delightful Collection of Traditional Christmas Carols
12/03/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is by far the best collection of Christmas music I have ever heard. I purchased the LP in the mid eighties, and I am thrilled to learn that it is being released on CD. Lewis Ross presents a fresh approach to traditional carols, with a style that is both cheerful and soothing."
An exceptional collection of Christmas guitar music.
11/03/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own this album in vinyl and have been looking for it on CD for several years. It is far and away the best collection of Christmas guitar music I have heard. Gentle, soothing, and nicely interpretive, it has more of a folk sound than a New Age sound--fuller, richer, less tinny than the typical New Age Christmas guitar recording. Even though it's a holiday album, it rewards listening any time of year."
