ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“A very beautiful CD…elegantly restrained and intimate…a breath of fresh
air.”
- DAVID BENOIT, Grammy-nominated pianist, composer/arranger and producer

“I loved your recording! Are you planning on making another one? The whole
thing is just lovely!”
- SIR JAMES GALWAY, world-renowned concert flutist

"The relaxed classical stylings are uplifting, comforting, and refreshing
all at once. The dozen Christmas pieces are old friends rejuvenated by creative
and tasteful arrangements. If you are a fan of either instrumental piano or
flute, you will be doubly pleased here."
- CAROL SWANSON, www.christmasreviews.com

Celebrate the season with the much-anticipated new Christmas CD by Karen
Smith and David Snyder! O HOLY NIGHT is a treasure trove of well loved and
familiar Christmas classics, newly arranged by this world class flute and piano
duo, who won raves for their first CD release, COLORS OF THE WIND.
Some of the album's highlights include: a prayerful, soaring rendition of
the title track, O HOLY NIGHT; the inventive, jazz-influenced DECK THE HALLS
VARIATIONS, that recalls the Claude Bolling suites for flute and piano; the
thematic pairing of carols such as WHAT CHILD IS THIS/COVENTRY CAROL and IT CAME
UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR/SILENT NIGHT; the Mannheim Steamroller-influenced
arrangements of WE THREE KINGS and GESU BAMBINO; and the joyful presentation of
classic carols in the CHRISTMAS CAROL SUITE and THREE CAROLS IN 6/8 TIME.
Holiday music is, without a doubt, the most treasured and well-loved music
worldwide. We can never get enough of traditional holiday favorites, and these
new arrangements help illuminate the beauty of this music even more. These
cherished melodies are brought to life by the skilled, artistic performances
of Karen and David. The simple and elegant combination of flute and piano is
the perfect compliment to your Christmas music collection, adding a festive
new flair that you will enjoy for many years to come.

O Holy Night
I love it!

Leonard Lopatin


Absolutely lovely arrangements. Karen Smith's playing is sweetly expressive and David Snyder truly makes the piano sing.

Alan D. Perkins

A New Holiday Classic
Karen and David have a totally symbiotic relationship going with this album. They mix seemlessly to create an original and exciting spin on songs we've all heard a million times. They are a true compliment to one another, which makes their music resonate to the sky. Excellent work!

O Holy Night
The cd is a wonderful assortment of christmas
carols, beautifully and hiply arranged. It will
make flutists crave for the arrangements.

O Holy Night
What a thrilling cd and a delight for flutists.
The arrangements are delightfully hip. Flutists
will sallivate for the arrangements just as i am.
I will anxiously contact these artists about the
availability of the arrangements.
