ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The serenity of these lovely Christmas arrangements intimately communicate the peace that can be ours through the timeless message of Christmas.

A personal note from Bronn: "Christmas and the harp. A combination that simply fits like a hand in a glove! These songs are the sacred songs from Christmas that are not often heard. Included is an original song called "Christmas Rose." The words are from a poem written by a friend of my parents. My mom cherished the poem, framed it, and hung it in her home's entry way. I often paused and read the poem. Later, I was inspired to write a melody. The poem follows;

Each December near my house
There blooms a Christmas Rose.
Unharmed by snow or bitter cold
This lovely blossom grows.

I know not why it does not die
When wintry breezes press.
I only know a brighter world
Comes from it's loveliness.

A legend says that Christmas Rose
Came that first Christmas day.
So that a child might have a gift
Before her Lord to lay.

May God's rich gifts be your today,
His blessings fall anew.
And whether skies be dark or fair
May roses bloom for you."

Thirty-two years ago, a volunteer with the Seattle Public Schools placed a harp in Bronn's hands for the first time and began teaching the 11 year old boy how to play. He advanced rapidly, and soon moved on to study with harpist Edith Lundgren. By the time he was 16, he was performing professionally in fine hotels and restaurants in the Seattle area. After high school, Bronn was accepted to the School of Music at the University of Washington where he received instruction from Pamela Vokelek. He graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in 1985.

Bronn's dazzling virtuosity and humorous approach to a seriously classical instrument have made him a favorite with concert goers. "Because of the experience of playing in a variety of settings, I am very comfortable playing in many different styles," comments Bronn. Classical, Sacred, Broadway and Popular tunes all flow effortlessly from the strings of his harp.

Seventeen albums are currently available on "Phileo Music." They are sold in fine gift shops across the US and Canada and of course right here on CD Baby and Bronn's web page!

When first introduced to the idea of a harp concert, many audiences may respond by asking, "The harp? Isn't that what cherubs play?" The answer in Bronn's case is - "Perhaps! But do cherubs play everything from Classics to Folk to Broadway?" Even though he's not a cherub, Bronn delivers a widely varied repertoire with wit and humor.

Great Music
All but two of these songs were familiar, but sounded special when given Bronn's special touch. Highly recommended.

Christmas Rose
This CD is just about perfect. We enjoyed it so much. We even played it until the New Year. Bronn is a superb musician. Marlene Barnes
