While creating "Remembering Christmas", it brought back to life the real meaning of its message. As you age from child to adulthood, "things" become of a lesser importance, while memories become the harvest of love and burn deep within one's heart. It is a season that unites all of us. Not in religion, but in experience: sadness of being away from a loved one, tenderness from walking in a cold brisk night, amazement at how the season can delicately dress ones heart with joy and hope... It is a season of wonders, that can be felt truly from within. A smile, a helping hand, a tender embrace, an opportunity to give a true gift from the heart that people will always remember from years to come. Love is winter's gift, sent to us all, from above...
Soaring, angelic vocals, coupled with innovative arrangements make this a masterpiece of seasonal music that reaches the depths of the soul without meandering into the sappy treacle so often associated with "Christmas" songs. If you ever wanted to know what Christmas is really about, look no further, your answer is right here.
"Remembering Christmas" contains a heartwarming mix of Christmas standards with rich melodies and beautiful ambient flavor. Definitely the unique, unparalleled sound from Gunnar Spardel and the soulful voice of Amethyste, make this CD a delight to the ears. Amethyste's vocal is so angelic and beautiful, that can make a person weep, or at least remember those lovely traditional Christmas days, when people treat each other a little nicer.
This is just a fantabulous collection of Christmas songs for a cold night and hot fire. Be sure to have some candles or Christmas lights nearby to complete this romantic atmosphere.
