When I started piecing together the repertoire for this recording I wanted it to be more than a solo harp recording of Christmas standards. I wanted to select pieces that had meaning for me. I wanted to share my favorite music of the Christmas season with the listener. The carols range from those that I learned as a girl in southern France to those I encountered as an adult in Ottawa, Canada, to one that I found in the past year. The common thread is that each carol brings in focus for me an aspect of the Christmas season.
In addition to Christmas carols, two major choral and harp pieces that are the seasonal standards for classical harp performers have been included. I perform Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten with choral groups each year. The piece is in the center of this recording as it is in the center of the harp repertoire for the Christmas season. The second choral piece is Tomorrow Shall be my Dancing Day by John Rutter.
The title, A Christmas Story, is taken from the solo harp piece written by Alphonse Hasselmans. The composition is rarely performed or recorded, but has such beauty and spirituality. I hope that I have introduced a new Christmas composition to you that will bring meaning to your holiday season.
I would like to wish everyone a happy Christmas and in the words of John Rutter, âthe music of Christmas is always perfect, and so I love to remember and celebrate Christmas in music and song.â
