5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas tunes played on the clarinet, 29 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Christmas Album (Audio CD)
I have always loved the sound of a clarinet since childhood, but the clarinet is rarely used as a major instrument in mainstream vocal music, so I content myself with the occasional instrumental album. Upon seeing an Acker Bilk Christmas album, I knew I had to buy it. There are no real surprises here as Acker works his way through nineteen familiar tunes, five of them coupled in two medleys, with no attempt to change the familiar arrangement - and what would be the point anyway, as the clarinet itself provides the distinctive sound?

I find it slightly amusing that Little drummer boy appears on a clarinet album, and that In the bleak midwinter (which began life as a poem without any music) appears here, but they sound wonderful. If you enjoy the sound of the clarinet, this could be just the Christmas album for you.
