Christmas Traditions 1
This collection of arrangements was conceived in December of 2003 out of a need for a small collection of Christmas music to play in the background during family gatherings. Always pulling out the Christmas song books and hammering away on the piano during the season, I decided to retire to my home studio and record the songs the way I typically played them-ad-hoc arrangements evolving spontaneously from fake sheets and old hymnals. Once the demo was complete I gave copies to friends and family. Seven years later that little demo is still a part of the background music for family holiday gatherings and requests have come for more copies -So I thought, well let's try this for real. Made some needed upgrades to the studio, locked myself in and bit by bit over a very hot summer recorded this collection based on the 2003 Arrangements. I hope you like it and hope it can enhance YOUR holiday traditions. Cheers! ... CE.
