Blackmore’s Night seasonal music for all ages Blackmore’s Night – Winter Carols

Blackmore’s Night seasonal music for all ages Blackmore’s Night – WINTER CAROLS:  Though seasonal music isn’t music I listen to often, there are certain players who know (very well) how to get me “in the mood”, so to speak… as you listen to Blackmore’s Night’s rendition of “Deck The Halls“, you’ll be hoisting your mugs & steins high in merry celebration of the holidays… the double-CD is full of musical gems from Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night!

Their performance on “Christmas Eve” in the video below combines great animation with shots of their live performance, and is (truly) one of the best holiday songs you’ll ever hear… also, I just loved the shots of Santa & his reindeer on this one

As you listen to tunes like “Good King Wenceslas“, you’ll feel like you’re in an ancient castle somewhere, tossing back mead and dancing ever-more joyously, right on through to the sunshine of early morning!

The 4:56 “Christmas Tree” will have you thinking back to the excitement and rush you had as you snuck downstairs to “shake the presents”, trying to figure out if Santa was really paying attention when he read your letter.

The passionate performances that Ritchie and Candice offer up will make a perfect gift for those who are “holiday-minded” in your circle of family and friends, especially on pieces like my personal favorite of the twenty-four offered up, “We Three Kings“… they did a marvelous job on the string-weave, and the vocal from Candice literally “shimmers” with the joys of the season on this tune; as with all their music, this will last through the ages. 

I give Blackmore’s Night a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this splendid double album.  Get more information on their DISCOGs page for the release.          Rotcod Zzaj
