WINTER SYMPHONY



I must share with you this new album I purchased yesterday. It is by Sarah Brightman...A Winter Symphony. Such beautiful, beautiful music. Many of the songs are traditional...but not necessarily traditional Christmas. There are a few carols along with some new music. The arrangements are so moving, and her voice is such a pure instrument. She is joined by a choir of children on several of the selections. According to the Amazon review, this music is very British, and quite typical of British Christmas music. I could not say for sure if I agree with that or not...since I don't know what traditional British Christmas music is supposed to sound like. But, I do know this. The music on this CD is so beautiful, it makes me weep. Now, it takes a lot to get me to that point. I am not a crier. But, listening to Amazing Grace, one of the tracks, in my car on the way to work this morning...I was moved to tears.

Don't buy this looking for a happy, 'Santa' type album, although there is some of that. But, if you believe in the worship worthiness of the Christmas season...this is the one for you!

I bought it at Barnes and Nobel, but it is available on Amazon.com for $12.99...and worth every penny and more!
