An enchanting, gentle, charming collection of popular and classical holiday tunes. It's my all-time favourite Christmas album. I own a lot of Guitar Christmas music and a lot of instrumental ones and this one is by miles the best one i've got. The arrangements are fantastic. Highlights include: What Child Is This? Blessed Jesus, Christmas Overture (O Come All Ye Faithful Medley) and it contains the best version of The Little Drummer Boy I have ever heard. Away in a Manger and Silent Night are also very interesting, and very well played.
The Album has other instruments too. There are strings, flutes, oboes, a Trumpet and some minor percussions. Most of the songs are calm and relaxing, other songs are faster and almost dancable, like the fantastic Yuletide Garland (Holly and the Ivy Fantasy) and Parade of Toy Soldiers, both arraned by Eric Robertson. I recommend this Album to every one looking for good Christmas music. I give it five stars.
