Gathering Light: Christmas Music for Solo Guitar
Taking a rest from singing and songwriting, 'Bainbridge Island's guitar wizard' (Victory News) turns to an all-instrumental release. These are the Midwinter tunes Pete has been playing privately for years, and finally enough people have requested them on disc to stir him from his Seasonal-Affective torpor. The program covers Advent carols like 'O Come, O Come Emmanuel' and 'Let All Mortal Flesh keep Silence,' Christmas standards like 'Silent Night' and 'It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,' plus feasting tunes like 'I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In' and 'In Dulci Jubilo.' There's even a ragtime arrangement of Jingle Bells.'
