“Peace on Earth” is the fifth CD of instrumental acoustic music recorded by jazz/slack-key guitarist Patrick Ki. Featuring an inspired collection of holiday and Christmas songs, “Peace On Earth” is crafted in the smooth yet richly orchestrated style which has become the trademark sound of this gifted artist.
With any of Patrick’s albums, the listener experiences a seamless blending of many eclectic influences. His upbringing in the Hawaiian Islands, extensive music education and widespread travels all combine to result in a unique mix that both surprises and delights the senses!
Along with beautiful renditions of traditional selections such as “O Holy Night”, “Pachelbel’s Canon” and “The Joy of Man’s Desiring”, Patrick has included seasonal classics like “The First Noel”, “White Christmas” and “Angels We Have Heard on High”. When complemented with popular modern hits like “Feliz Navidad” and “Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas”, it’s easy to see how this album has become a holiday favorite for appreciators of Patrick’s music.
While the soothing ambience of “Peace on Earth” is similar to that of its’ predecessors (Patrick’s trio of best selling albums that showcase restful versions of popular songs and favorite movie soundtracks), “Peace” also possesses a unique uplifting quality for the spirit that makes it a perfect choice for holiday entertaining and gift-giving!
