O’s Notes: Windham Hill traditionally brings us a wealth of tranquil world music. This second edition of Holiday tunes continues along those lines. A great sense of peace and freedom fill the air when playing this CD. The songs, “God Rest Ye Merry”, “Patapan” and eleven others are all familiar arranged in simple formats. The approach is primarily acoustic solo and small ensembles using violins, oboe, flute, French and English horns, guitars and piano. Imagine dancing in the snow forgetting about the normal stresses and pains of life!
