ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
in 2007 and 2008, the Vancouver Province chose 'acoustic christmas' as one of the top 5 favorite all time christmas recordings, along with Bing Crosby, Aretha Franklin, Leon Redbone
4 1/2 STARS!!!
John McLaughlin, The Vancouver Province
"This is fast becoming one of my favorite Christmas records ever. Sinclair is one of the finest guitarists in town...His playing is wonderfully lyrical and contemplative, perfectly suited to a quiet evening away from all that seasonal razzle dazzle out there."

"David is a beautiful and gifted guitar player and he shines in his renditions of these gentle and spirited Christmas songs."
Sarah McLachlan, recording artist

Linda

One of the best acoustic guitar Christmas cd's
I have a lot of Christmas guitar music by both famous and obscure artists. This cd is definitely my favourite. The playing is exquisite, and David's approach to the traditional songs is refreshing while still being comfortably familiar. How he plays with the timing on Silent Night catches my ear every time, as does the way he weaves two melodies together on Oh Little Towns. It works wonderfully well as relaxing background music for the season, but stands up well to closer scrutiny. Highly recommended for acoustic guitar fans of all ages!

Barry Greenfield

a must.. Christmas after Christmas
I buy at least one Chritmas CD most years. This is the finest one I have. I play them all, but I play this one the most. (Amy Grant's second). Christmas morning and throughout the day its on heavy rotation.
I highly recommend that you play a clip, and I am confident you'll agree /.A must for those who love this genre...like me....and my family.

Snow falling, fire glowing, Acoustic Christmas on the stereo. Perfect.
Every cut is a gem. I bought one copy for a friend and one for me. Soothing, quiet, beautiful. It's a classic. I highly recommend this fine, musical complement to Christmas.
