ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1st place Winner Best Traditional Holiday Song and 3rd place Winner Best Holiday Album for the Just Plain Folks 2009 music awards! A Music Box Christmas features 16 of the world's most beloved Christmas carols beautifully orchestrated, with the sound of the music box entwined throughout. The sentiment of each carol is uniquely captured, and the entire set reflects perfectly the many moods of Christmas. Selections include a rambunctious version of 'I Saw Three Ships', a glorious 'Joy to the World', a hauntingly beautiful 'Silent Night', a lilting 'Alegria' from Puerto Rico, a rocking version of 'O Come All Ye Faithful', a tender version of the German carol 'Still, Still, Still', and many more wonderful favorites. This is the recording you'll reach for when you want to get into the true spirit of Christmas. It's also great for playing during holiday gatherings to set the mood. All of the selections on the CD are also available on iTunes and other online distributors, and from CD Baby's own download service.

Michel Prezman composes music for many genres, including world music, classical music, jazz, new age, dance, and many more. He scored over 20 award-winning documentary films. His compositions have been heard in theatres, on television, radio, and in live performances before audiences numbering in the thousands. His music is found in prestigious music libraries in the United Kingdom (Boosey and Hawkes) and in France (Verisimo).

The overwhelming quality of his work is its cinematic character. His music often has exciting climaxes, sharp angles, or ethereal passages. His use of beautiful, intriguing melodies and strong pulsing rhythms combined with a signature harmonic style are instantly recognizable. His orchestrations generate a range of emotions from taught suspense to lush romanticism and his themes range from crystalline, bright, and sing-able to broodingly ominous. His rhythmic and harmonic crescendos leave listeners breathless. The influence of world rhythms and melodic styles can be heard. Whether composing for film, stage, or studio, his music evokes strong visuals that perfectly suit the production. Because his compositions and arrangements are visual, they have great variety.

What a perfect way to get you in the mood for the holidays! Friends and family will enjoy this CD. Highly recommended for all, I'd bet it would even get ol' Scrooge to change from saying BAH-HUMBUG! to HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
