Xybornaut Christmas

by Xybor & the Cosmonauts

This is a small collection of traditional Christmas songs, among my favorites. Some are modernized and some performed in a more traditional manner. I like an acoustic sound, and have mostly developed the songs from that perspective.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album has five songs on it, all public domain (i.e. no royalties). Carol of the Bells is a largely instrumental version of this well known carol. It is worth checking out Wikipedia for a bit of history on this interesting piece. The middle part has lyrics which I wrote. The Angel Gabriel and Coventry Carol are both somewhat obscure but very beautiful and somewhat haunting. I had some vocal help from my daughter on the Angel Gabriel. What Child is This has always been one of my favorites, maybe because I like songs in a minor key. This recording has a HUGE 12-string on it, which I just love. Finally, Jolly Old St Nicholas is a poppy kind of Xmas song. I put a kazoo ensemble solo in the middle and end, which really cracks me up.

As an aside, the image on the cover is a photo of a replica of the Shroud of Turin. The image on the upper left is the actual image, the other three have been filtered to bring out the image.
