Format: Audio CD
It's already been over 30 years since the analogue LP record of this album was first released. This was one of the earliest albums released by the record label, Windham Hill Records. I was only a teenager at that time, but since then I don't know how many times I've listened to this AMAZING piano solo collection.

For those who are not familiar with Winston's works, his piano style is not classical or jazz, and it's not like popular 'mood' piano and certainly not like a 'hotel lounge' kind of piano. The sound of Winston's piano is clear, atmospheric and has a certain 'calming effect'. I'd recommend this CD to anybody who wants to spend the Christmas time and the whole winter quietly. It'd be a perfect Christmas present, too, but I'd like to emphasise that this CD shouldn't be limited to a mere 'Christmas CD' even though this album contains some famous music sung during the Christmas time, because it's too good to put away after the festive season. I personally enjoy listening to it any time of the year.

If you've enjoyed his piano, his other albums, especially Autumn (Windham Hill 20th Anniversary Edition), would be a good one too!

This is the perfect antidote to the usual Christmas music you hear played in shopping malls from mid-November.
Winston's arrangement of Carol of the Bells is particularly captivating but Bach's 'Joy' runs it a pretty close second. And that's not to put down Winston's own compositions. Play this Cd and think to yourself: 'this is how Christmas ought to feel'.

I've been playing this album each December for 25 years now and can honestly say that I get a thrill of pleasure every time I hear it. It genuinely does provide the soundtrack to our Christmas holiday each year and whether played quietly in the background or intently listened to, it always lifts the spirits and soothes the soul.
Mr. Winston has produced many fine albums but this is probably his best and I have given this to many people over the years and evryone has loved it as much as I do. His version of Canon in D is one of my favourite pieces of music ever. It stoppeds me in my tracks when I first heard it and I still love it.

Do yourself and your family a favour; buy it and let it be your Christmas soundtrack too.

Bought this CD back when it firs releases but my original CD had scratches and therefore I had to buy it again. Great to have the bonus tracks too! Simply love this album and it is my fav of the 4 season series. My second fav is Autumn. If you like George Winston, I would highly recommend his Forest album too.

A lovely alternative to the usual predictable and familiar x-mas music. This is the perfect background music for any winter party where family and/or friends are sharing good food and drink. Also the best music to sit by a window and watch snow fall. Sometimes melecholic but not depressing and at other times it fills the room with good tidings and joy. An album you can press the repeat button on and listen to three times. The perfect winter music.

I've had this CD for years and recently decided to share it with 2 friends. They too fell in love with George Winston's fine fngering of the piano keys, so well suited to the season.
