Christmas is a time of joy! The joy of looking forward to a time of family and celebration as well the joy about what is actually being celebrated. The texts and the music of many German Christmas carols make a wonderful statement in this regard. For many years the desire to play and sing those christmas carols in a fresh and more appealing way matured in Christiane's heart. With her new album, this desire has now been fulfilled. An inner contemplative mood as well as a deep sense of delight emerge from her fresh contemporary arrangements. Together with her Trio Christiane succeeded in bringing together the worlds of tradition, jazz and pop while sticking to the strong and most important message of Christmas: Rejoice!
