'PEACEFUL AND SOOTHING MUSIC THAT FEELS LIKE A WARM BLANKET ON A COLD NIGHT OR A CUP OF HOT CIDER IN WINTER.' ...A Listener... REVIEWS: Carol Wright, NAPRA TRADE JOURNAL 'These chamber music arrangements of traditional Christmas carols showcase both the enduring brilliance of these standards and the sensitive artistry of both performers. This is a quality recital, really, and it's worth paying attention to just as you would a string quartet. Fierro's classy arrangement of Bach's 'Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring' will all but make you bow down, and following this is a ravishingly beautiful treatment of Pachelbel's Canon in D. The purity of this album is like breathing in diamonds. Don't deny yourself.' DIRTY LINEN MAGAZINE 'Pianist Fierro and flutist Sikorski bring us some duets of traditonal and classical material that is very relaxing and beautiful. (This album) is perfect for a romantic evening.' PIANIST Nancy Fierro enjoys a career of performing, composing and teaching. As a solo concert artist, she is widely acclaimed for her recordings and recitals of music by women. FLUTIST PATTY SIKORSKI is active as a performer and teacher in the Southern California area. She participates in various ensembles both locally and nationally. TO OUR LISTENERS: A greeting.... This album is our gift of peace to you during the busy holiday season. We put together a colorful mixture of carols from various cultures and perform them with a classical touch and what we felt was the true spirit of Christmas---a harmonious blending of peace and joy. We hope our music captures that spirit in full measure. Several pieces quote well-known classical themes. We just couldn't resist blending a little Mozart and Beethoven into our arrangements.
