ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This enchanting Christmas Piano CD is beautiful, festive, heart-warming, and is yet another surprise from the multi-talented dual Canadian/USA citizen, recording artist & mother of three from Vancouver, BC. Jam-packed with her beautiful piano arrangements (some simple / some stirringly symphonic) of the most-loved ancient Christmas carols of the Millenium, this instrumental CD could likely become the favourite in your Christmas collection!

The Christmas Piano will help you soar through the Season with perspective, as well as create an unforgettable ATMOSPHERE of \"comfort & joy\" in your home at Christmas.

The story behind it (on the CD Jacket only!) is just as memorable as the music that will fill your home. It will inspire you and your children to love learning piano, and enjoy music in the home. You and your children will want to deck your halls and tree, sing along, and worship at the manger while listening to \"The Christmas Piano\"!

This is the first Instrumental piano CD in a series of three, and comes with a beautiful surprise at the end of it: a VOCAL RADIO SINGLE of Debbie\'s song, entitled \"THE MUSIC OF EMMANUEL\".

Many think that this song alone could become one of the century\'s most loved Christmas Anthems! Listen to clips HERE, and order it in plenty of time for Christmas!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING...

\"WOW!!! I smiled, I cried, I hummed and sang along, I had some nostalgic moments - this new Christmas CD is most definitely going to be one of my all-time favourites! I have 2 instrumental (grand piano) CDs (The Living Room Sessions and Christmas Selections by well-known artists) that I have loved and played a lot over the last number of years, thinking it couldn\'t get any better than this. Well, guess what? It just did!\" ~ Far Away Friend from BC, Canada


\"When I looked at the front cover, and the back, I could see very clearly, the holiness of our God in you and just knew the music would be reflection of Him in you. Every facet of this recording is worship of and to God. You have been raised up for such a time as this!
I will thank Jesus for music, each time I listen to this.\"
~ Far Away Friend from BC, Canada



This album is such a blessing! I\'ve always taught our children that Christmas is every day. Today I received this wonderful \'confirmation\' that we indeed may bring the blessing of Christmas into our home daily. CONGRATULATIONS, THIS ALBUM WILL BE A GREAT SUCCESS!
You realise that this is your golden album -- the Savior\'s very own!

Beautiful Christmas Piano!
”The Christmas Piano” is a wonderful instrumental collection of favorite Christmas songs, some arranged as piano solos and others for piano with orchestrations, performed by Debbie Fortnum with the help of Chris Janz. In addition to being a singer/songwriter/pianist, Fortnum is an inspirational speaker, ministry leader, wife of a pastor, and mother of three. In addition to her two instrumental albums, she has recorded several spoken-word and vocal CDs. Her two piano albums are exceptionally good, so we’ll hope she continues the series. While there are officially seventeen tracks on “The Christmas Piano,” many are medleys, bringing the song total to twenty-seven. Some are high-energy, and some are peaceful and serene. Not as boisterous as Mannheim Steamroller, but a bit more spirited than David Lanz’s “Christmas Eve” - a very nice balance to these ears.

The opening medley of “I Saw Three Ships” and “Good Christian Men Rejoice” fairly dances out of the CD player. Exuberant and full of joy, this is a great beginning! Fortnum then pairs a darkly delicious arrangement of “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen” with her own “March of the Camels,” interweaving the melodies seamlessly. The medley of “Away In a Manger” and “Silent Night” is a sweet piano solo that keeps the arrangements simple and heartfelt. “Carol of the Bells” adds drama to any Christmas collection, with its dark, haunting energy, and this version is no exception - a great arrangement! An equally haunting but more serene “What Child Is This?” follows, arranged for piano and strings. “A Thousand Candles” is a new Christmas song for me, and it’s a beautiful Swedish carol presented as a piano solo. “O Christmas Tree” is one of the simplest of Christmas songs, and Fortnum stays true, keeping embellishments to a minimum and letting the melody sing. “O Holy Night” is richly orchestrated but again lets the heartfelt melody sing rather than smothering it with too many instrumental voices. “Deck the Halls”/”We Wish You A Merry Christmas” is a sprightly piano solo - short, sweet, and lighthearted. “O LIttle Town of Bethlehem”/”It Came Upon the Midnight Clear” is an elegant piano solo, full of love and peace. The closing “bonus” track is an original vocal piece called, “The Music of Emmanuel,” which could become a future classic carol.

“The Christmas Piano” is one of the best Christmas albums I’ve heard in several years. I really like the variety of stylings and the selection of carols is excellent. There are no “Jingle Bells” or Santa songs, but if the spiritual side of Christmas is more to your liking than the commercial, pop end of things, this will be an addition to your collection that you’ll return to year after year. Cheers!

Beautiful piano renditions of all the favorites.
The music is very easy listening, wonderful for background music or contemplative listening. The selections are all the favorites, I sent copies to my whole family in their Christmas cards. I've been playing it non-stop!!!
