We all love the melodies of Christmas. With each passing year, however, the heartwarming sounds of our childhood carols are increasingly drowned out by the noise of cash registers and commercials. Each autumn the neon signs on every corner blinking âXMAS SALE!â seem switched on earlier than the year beforeâthe meaning of Christmas relegated (again) to an even smaller space in society.
Jeff Bjorckâs fifth Pure Piano CD, The Wondrous Gift, is his somewhat about-face response to these forward-marching materialistic trends. He takes you back to a simpler time, when the term âMerry Christmasâ was still considered a warm greeting.
The classic carols featured on this CD will bring listeners floods of memories. As he did on his last CD, This I Know: Ageless Hymns of Faith, Jeff brings unique interpretative arrangements to each of the dozen selections while making sure to pay tribute to the original melodies. Although recorded in 2010, many of the selections heâs been playing for years. Jeff loves them all, and each has story to tell. The sonic results provide listeners with music suitable for many occasions, from intimate holiday gatherings to Sunday morning preludes to personal times of nostalgic reflection.
Jeffâs Pure Piano Music has been drawing avid listeners from around the world for the last 13 years, thanks to an Internet that makes music globally accessible. The Internet has also given Jeff ready access to his listeners, and before choosing the pieces for this CD, he polled them regarding their favorite carols. This collaborative effort resulted in a cross-section of carols for The Wondrous Gift truly loved by all who love Christmas as well as Jeffâs music. âIâm very grateful for my listeners,â Jeff says. âItâs my heartfelt wish that this new music brings each one of them joy, nostalgia, and a reminder of Christmasâ true meaning, both this year and for many years to come.â
One particularly happy outcome was that Jeffâs favorite carol, âO Holy Night,â was the overwhelming favorite among those polled. Whereas many arrangements of this piece tend to transform it into a rousing anthem, Jeffâs arrangement preserves the quiet peace and awe doubtless felt by Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds on that first Christmas Eve. Other selections, such as âCoventry Carolâ create a space for sadness when loved ones are no longer present to celebrate Christmas with us. Still others, such as âO Come All Ye Faithfulâ and âCome, Thou Long-Expected Jesus,â reflect the exuberant anticipation experienced by so many at this time of year.
The Wondrous Gift is sure to create a sense of wonder that echoes the angelsâ joyous proclamation that first Christmas: âGlory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward all.â
