New England Christmastide, Vol. 2|
This is the second release in the New England Music Collection series. At the time work started on this, we were both suprised and pleased at the tremendous success of Volume 1. Most of the arrangements are more intricate, as each of the original participants took two tunes under their wing with some time for preparation. Among these familiar carols are some more obscure ones as well. Included are The Twelve Days of Christmas, O Tannenbaum, Jingle Bells, Go Tell It on the Mountain.
As you might expect, the musicians turned in great performances on flute, mandolin, piano, guitar, violin, cello, bass, banjo, concertina, accordion, tin whistle, and even vielle, hurdy-gurdy, harmonium and Irish pipes. Once again, my wife Fances created the cover art for this as well as all of the subsequent New England Music Collection series. If you liked Volume 1, then you are bound to enjoy this one.
