I love Christmas music, I have played it year after year and I never tire of it. This recording was long overdue. I made a Christmas record 10 years ago called Celestial Winds \'Christmas Morning.\' It was a lovely record for the time but after all these years, I new I could do a much better one. So I took some of my very favorites from the record, re-recorded them with George playing flutes, did my very best arrangements and chose some new tunes to record as well. This time around I have much more resources to produce a high quality audio recording. When I hear the older Christmas Morning recording, I feel the sound quality is rather murky, and there are too many sound effects on the harp and especially the flutes. To much echo effects. It was ok for that time, but these days I prefer the more natural sound of the instruments. \'Silent Night\' is all traditional music with the exception of one original tune called \'Morning Star\' that I wrote a few years back that just seemed to fit in perfect. So far it's been extremely well received, people say they play it all the time, even when it's not the season.. so that makes me happy. It's an honor to be a part of so many folks holiday memories.
