Guitar, Sax, and Piano Winterlude are also GREAT!!

"I first heard "Winterlude" while getting physical therapy during the holidays of 1996. My husband and I were in an auto accident in November, and this music really helped to ease my pain during PT. I found the title of CD, and went and bought them all. "Winterlude" and "Guitar Winterlude" are my favs, but the others are just as great. If you find them for sale, buy them. They are very difficult to find. Happy Holidays to all, and be safe!!"

""Winterlude" is yet another in the "Winterlude" Christmas CD series (specifically, Volume 8) that offers a thoughtful, musical Noel. This CD consists of a mix of traditional carols, both religious and secular.

Regency Music again demonstrates that a musical offering need not be vocal to be pleasant. "Winterlude" is a good way to relax after a day of tree-trimming, frolicking in the snow, or shopping, and is right at home whether you're visiting with friends or alone with your thoughts.

The performers include: Alan Steinberger, Bruce Martin, Bill Altvater and John Arnn (keyboards); John Darnall (guitar); and Eric Darken (percussion).

Like the other CD's in the series, "Winterlude" blends equally well with a mug of hot cocoa, a warm blanket, a fire in the fireplace, and a light snowfall viewed from a frosted window. Also, as with the other offerings in this series, this CD is relatively short (just under 34 minutes), but the choice of carols is more important than the number of carols.

Note: this CD is out of print, so it may be difficult to obtain. Yet it is a good way to round out the "Winterlude" series and really reflect on the Christmas season. Therefore, I recommend it as part of your Christmas music collection.

Calming music for Christmas

"This instrumental recording is my favorite. Now that I know it is the one I want, I am returning to order more for gifts. With a cup of hot chocolate and an easy chair, the perfect music for cuddling and looking at the Christmas lights."
