I felt very skeptical about purchasing this CD because I was afraid I'd get something tinkley and icky-sweet, but not so. This is a wonderful CD. The sound of the harp is rich and resonant, like the thrumming of a Spanish guitar and the deep ringing of churchbells combined. Although the mood is completely different, this one belongs right up there with Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, and The White Christmas Album as a Christmas staple. A joy to listen to again and again.
