A great and beautiful time of year.
The houses, the cities, the towns decorated with lights and Christmas decorations and when it snows it just is magical - if just for a moment .
If we could only make it last !
The carols and hymns in this album are some of my favorites and I hope I have conveyed the beauty and majesty in my arrangements .
For those who can't remember a joyous Christmas and there
are many, I hope that in some small way these songs will
help to bring you some peace .
And to everyone .
ALL SONGS SHOULD BE PLAYED IN - HI-FI BROADBAND -
FOR A MORE CORRECT SOUND

Who am I , that's a difficult question . When it comes to this type of thing, I'm someone who loves beautiful music , from all types of genre's , songs , musicians but not all and not everything or everyone . Late in life , I got the whim to start playing the keyboard , which I did , without any formal training and although I can't compete with the masters , the greats , near greats and very good, I'll continue to do so until the end . Every once in awhile I'll mess with the guitar and harmonica ( not very good ) hate to practice ( and practice makes perfect or at least better ), pay attention kids . And all that has led to this , most of us don't advance because we're afraid of failing . We may never reach our goals -- but how do we know , if we don't try . It's fourth down - inch's from the goal line - go for it ( whatever it is ). Experience is the best teacher but often the most bitter . There was much music , artistic , athleticisim talent in our family that went by the wayside . If you don't do - you regret. My mother, always, used to say -- " YOU CAN'T PUT AN OLD HEAD ON YOUNG SHOULDERS " , how true ! RDM
