The sounds of the winter wind...the morning frost on the windows...the warmth of the fireplace and the beauty of a snowy starlit night, all these images and more await you in Ariel's wonderful Celtic Christmas album 'Wintersong'! Be transported by Ariel's ethereal voice, Celtic harp, piano and guitar. For this special recording she is joined by Jen Bernard on flute, Marilee Hord on violin, Skip Von Kuske on cello and accompanied on vocals by Lara Michell and Jason Roark. Her third studio album is overflowing with enchanting new versions of favorite carols like 'Greensleeves', 'Un Flambeau Jeanette Isabelle'(in French and English!) and a very sweet rendition of 'O Holy Night'. There are also historic Celtic songs such as the lovely Latin 'Cantus/Jesu Kin' which date back to the 8th and 13th century and 'Christ Child's Lullaby' from the Hebrides Islands. 'The Cutty Wren' is an old English Mid-Winter folk song from 1381 which stems from the St. Stephens Day tradition of hunting the wren to welcome good fortune. You will also find some favorite contemporary holiday songs from Gordon Lightfoot, Loreena McKennit, John McCutcheon, Steeleye Span and the title track 'Wintersong' written by Ariel which make this an album everyone will love! This is the perfect music collection for an elegant holiday event, relaxing on the way home after shopping for gifts and simply being calm and reflecting on the magic of the winter season.
