Experience Christmas as you never have before with an intoxicating mix of Gaelic, Didgeridoo, Paraguayan Harp, Soprano Sax, String Orchestra and a world of Rhythm that will free your spirit as it calms your senses.
This album should definitely be a stocking stuffer for music fans looking for something different this holiday season. Fiona Joy's playing style and arrangements along with string orchestra and a variety of eclectic instruments will make this album a favorite all year long for many listeners.
The lilting, open "Walking In the Air" to her version of "The Holly and the Ivy" are just perfect in front of a warm fire with a cup of hot chocolate as you watch the snow falling outside. Listen for the Didgeridoo and the Paraguayan Harp which provide playful accents for this wonderful Christmas collection.
"Both in her unique slant on traditional music and in her wonderful original compositions, Christmas Joy is an utterly brilliant creation and a recording of stellar beauty for the season."
