The songs are familiar carols, but A WINDHAM HILL CHRISTMAS retains the WINDHAM HILL WINTER SOLSTICE tradition of unusual arrangements and performances that evoke the mood of the season, especially if your take on that mood is a Northeast, snow-covered landscape like that depicted on the Hallmark card cover. The usual bevy of Windham Hill sampler artists are all here, with often innovative arrangements of traditional Christmas music. A Windham Hill Christmas is our CD of the Month for December.
