Synopsis

Amazon.com
Companion to Richard Paul Evans's best-selling novel of the same name, on The Christmas Box, pianist Paul Cardall musically interprets the season and themes of this beloved story. Minus the fuss and muss of the overly boisterous fare blared in most public places from Thanksgiving through New Year's, Cardall's song cycle cuts to the core of what this season is all about. Deft arrangements of carols and original compositions, warmly articulated piano pieces tastefully augmented by strings and simple production help to vest these songs with quiet wonder and simple grace. And thankfully, we are spared the marring these lovely tunes by vocals. The Christmas Box perfectly captures moods of the darkening days of winter, and is a welcome antidote to the gaudy commercialization of a season of Spirit. Come December, this is the record to smooth frayed nerves and refocus one's sense of gratitude. --Paige La Grone

Soothing, gets me in the mood for Christmas
Sherril | 12/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a pianist who loves playing similar music and wish so much they would publish this CD in a book. His stylings are fantastic and I fell in love with his playing the first time I heard him."
The best christmas music

"I have had this cd for a few years, and lent it out but never got it back. This was for me, the best christmas music I have heard in a long time. A new twist on a few old favorites and original writing....I must go and find a replacement before the holidays. For anyone interested in piano music for the holidays, this one is well worth it! Thank you for letting me express my opinion
Sincerely.
Sherril O'Connell-Clark"
Christmas music for people who are tired of Christmas music

"I've lost track of how many purchases I've made of 'The Christmas Box' CD over the past few years. At least five: myself, brother, sister, two cousins. It's not a matter of forcing my tastes on them, because they all loved it. My favorites are The Widow's Mansion and Diamonds for Stones, but everything is great.
Percy Faith's Music of Christmas from 50+ years ago has always been special to me, for example a thunderous King Wenceslas and the best Silent Night ever. But The Christmas Box is a new treasure with its own wonders.
All year long, I listen mostly to Paul and to Michael Jones, who are 32 years apart but to me share a certain 'touch' on the piano."
