ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Waldo's arrangements for "Christmas Classical Guitar" have taken shape over several years. They were recorded and produced during a time he worked at a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in Springfield, Missouri. His busy schedule resulted in a very intense recording process which actually fostered creativity for him. In addition to "Christmas Classical Guitar," Waldo has released three other albums including a solo work, "The Glorious Guitar"; a live concerto album of Andrew Charlton's "Partita Concerto" with the Trinity Recorder Consort of Madison, Wisconsin; and a recording in collaboration with instrument builder and keyboardist Mark Roark Chartier, "Positively Beautiful - Positive Organ and Classical Guitar." Waldo's classical guitar arrangements on Christmas Classical Guitar make use of various combinations of Christmas guitar with harpsichord and positive organ. John Waldo’s "Christmas Classical Guitar" recording is a wonderful album of instrumental Christmas music. It is a classical guitar Christmas album that features traditional carols with guitar accompanied in new settings of harpsichord and positive organ. It is available as a Christmas CD or as an MP3 download. Packaged in an eco-wallet, it can serve as a musical greeting card with space to write a Christmas greeting. It is soothing, relaxing, simply gorgeous Christmas music. Hopefully you will find it one of the best collections of instrumental Christmas carols available this year. Enjoy.

Christmas Classical Guitar
A nice combination of our familiar Christmas songs

Like hearing candlelight
If I had to describe candlelight to someone without sight, I would play this CD. The familiar Christmas tunes come across so warm and unassuming. The combination of traditional instruments and Mr. Waldo's breezy fingers dancing across the guitar strings provide such a soothing background to holiday dinner parties, a calming effect in my car as I circle the mall's parking lot for the 4th time, and make good company when I'm folding laundry. This is no new attempt at Christmas with a twist. It is just my comfy old favorites, interpreted beautifully.
