Whether it's a medieval carol in praise of the Virgin Mary, a seasonal ballet classic, or modern secular songs about snowmen and reindeer, there's something about Christmas music that's so natural on the hammered dulcimer. The sparkling ring of the instrument fits perfectly with images of crisp December air, snowy starlit nights, and peeling Christmas bells. It was great having all those wintry images in my head while recording this collection in the middle of summer somehow the 90 degree days seemed just a little cooler!

This collection includes some of my favorite Christmas melodies and memories, along with a few new tunes and some new takes on old tunes. I hope it will contribute to your seasonal celebration now and for many Christmases to come!
