...an intensely lyrical album, rare and gentle like the softest flakes of snow,
Lorraine Nelson Wolf's 'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime is an intensely lyrical album, rare and gentle like the softest flakes of snow, but warm when the lovely music melts against your cheek. I love music like this--a little folk, a little classical, with new age tinges. This intimate album is all about Nelson Wolf's remarkably warm and welcoming voice and accomplished piano accompaniment, and eleven excellent tracks of traditional holiday fare. Three pieces ("O Come, O Come Emmanuel," "Wachet Auf (Sleeper Awake)," and "In Dulci Jubilo/Bring a Torch") are intricate instrumentals; the rest include Nelson Wolf's textured, emotive voice.
Everything works wonderfully on this CD. The centerpiece is the title number "'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime" (otherwise known as "The Huron Carol"), one of my all-time favorite seasonal numbers. Nelson Wolf handles it in three "parts" here, providing three relatively short a cappella verses of this sweet carol interspersed throughout the album. Interestingly, each subsequent "part" starts on a slightly higher key. And speaking of a cappella singing, Nelson Wolf also does a magnificent "Mary Had a Baby," which includes an a cappella final verse that had me smiling from ear to ear. My only disappointment is the album's length. At 35 minutes, I had to say goodbye to a beautiful companion much too quickly.
'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime is a first-class Christmas album for a broad audience. Lorraine Nelson Wolf's presence here provides an immediate glow; bring that soft light into your living room for an exceptional holiday experience.
