Storybook Advent Caroling BookA Traditional Christmas through Music

One of our favorite memories of childhood involves family and friends gathering to share dinner, open presents and sing Christmas carols. The fireplace in the background, everyone would gather around the piano whilst someone played. The gorgeous melodies, that only a piano can capture, filled the home, weaving a soundtrack of happy memories for all present. The Storybook Advent Christmas Carols Collection brings that tradition home again. Elegant, beautiful and capturing the best loved Christmas Carols from Britain and America played in the traditions of each country, each song is performed by master musician Michael Brech on a single piano at his studio near Exeter.   We wanted to create a musical experience that would add to your holiday enjoyment, whether as a soundtrack for a cocktail party, musical score for caroling or simply something to listen to whilst reading, decorating the tree or opening presents.

One of the surprises Michael and I ran into producing this album, with he being British and I American, was how many of each other’s songs we’d never heard.  My all time favorite, “Oh Holy Night”, he’d never heard before. Likewise, I didn’t know several of my favorites like “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”, “O Little Town of Bethlehem”, and “Away in the Manger” are played to a different arrangement in England. Nor had I heard several of the British carols before. Discovering new music for the holidays is just one of the little joys you’ll experience with the Storybook Advent Carols Collection.

This collection includes 40 songs, 20 American and 20 British Christmas classics as well as the Storybook Advent Carols Collection Songbook with the words and lyrics for all the songs, all for just $9.99.

Merry Christmas!
