The Joy of Christmas Classics celebrates the Christmas time when days grow colder and nights, – longer. Just like we still do these days, people of ancient times lit candles and gathered round fires to lure back the sun. They brought out stores of food and enjoyed feasting and festivities. Dances were danced, and songs were sung, and all delighted in decorating their homes. In The Joy of Christmas Classics, composer Christel Veraart brings to life the songs she heard while growing up. Through eleven enchanting instrumentals she invites you to celebrate the season.
The Joy of Christmas Classics is Christel Veraart’s fresh take on Christmas Classics, – traditional instruments are re-imagined with new technology and spacious sounds.
