This latest project is a unique instrumental collection of classical and early European folk songs. Themes originate with guitar or piano and include cello, English horn, bass, flute and accordion - with a dash of violin, mandolin, hurdy gurdy and bells. One piece is a cappella supported with a bass drone. Guest artists include a small cast of talented muscians; Christine Gunn plays delightful melodies on cello and Karen Gheorghui (who also performed on Makria, a past CD of Chris') brings back the beauty of the English horn. Tom TeRonde adds delicate bass lines to many of the pieces and Carl Dexter mixes in a few spices to round out the themes. The majority of tracks were produced by Sohre at Fleeting Echoes, her home studio in the Pacific NW, though she used her portable setup to record a few tracks on the fly. The final mix was completed at DreamKitchen Studio in Olympia, WA along with long-time friend, Carl Dexter. WINTER is printed on 100% recycled materials with soy-based ink.
