When it comes to Christmas, there are two camps. There are those who find it commercial and hollow, and those who are bewitched by the season’s traditions, music, and unique magic. 1 fall decidedly in the latter category. lt’s long been an ambition of mine to record a Christmas CD, and when I approached Günter Pauler with the idea last year, he was more than enthusiastic.
So I set out upon the formidable task of choosing my favorite Christmas songs. 1 decided on sorne timeless standards, and a few unknown gems. Then I sat down and penned a few of my own (destined to become evergreens!). Günter and I set aside two weeks in August to lay them down.
So Margaret and I boarded a plane and headed to Northeim Germany where we met lan Melrose, spent a while kicking around sorne ideas, and then started recording! lt’s a bit strange to be singing about Santa in the dead of summer, but we had little trouble summoning the Christmas spirit. 1 sure hope you like result.
My sincerest thanks to Günter for making this recording possible. Thanks also to the entire Stockfisch family: Evelyn, Inés, Hendrik and Hans-Jorg for mailing our stay so comfortable and so much fun.
