Editorial Reviews

Return once more to the realm of Ebonshire to celebrate the magic and glory of Winter. In the heart of the Ebonshire forest, the Winter King takes his place upon the crystal throne. With a single breath he transforms the woodlands into an enchanted kingdom of ice and snow. Raising his staff, he summons the four winds and sets them forth to spread his magic throughout the land. And as the earth is covered beneath a blanket of ivory white, the world rejoices in the wondrous realm of winter.
     This album features enchanting melodies and heartwarming songs for the holiday season, including an instrumental version of "We Three Kings" and a ghostly rendition of "Scarborough Fair" with original lyrics and musical arrangements by Joseph Vargo and vocals performed by Jeff Endemann. (21 tracks. 68 mins.)

5.0 out of 5 stars The trilogy concludes. December 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I was hoping with Winter's Majesty that much like the previous winter album Winter's Eve I would be able to lay on the couch with alcoholic beverage in hand while the snowflakes fell.
Sadly that is not the case here as there isn't a snow storm in sight and I'm trying to work from home...so clearly, no booze lol.
A few things to get out of the way first.
The artwork is some of Vargo's best yet.
Beautiful, stunning and vibrant.
The production is as always a non-issue.
Crisp and clear with everything being heard without sounding overproduced.

We then come to the music itself...
The CD opens with a real beauty Aquilon's Wish.
Gorgeous track.
Tranquility is next and the title is appropriate.
White Woodlands...at this point as is the case with all Nox CD's I can't help but scratch my head at how Vargo comes up with titles that perfectly match the music but he does. White Woodlands is just that...a beautiful snow covered forest filled with beautiful sounds.
Dark Sanctuary, beautiful and haunting.
Summon the Wind, I had a feeling this would be a little crazy and it doesn't disappoint.
(That was a compliment by the way).
Snow in the Shire, The title reminds me of Lord of the Rings...I don't know if that's what Vargo had in mind.
I'm picturing Hobbit's building miniature snowmen with Gandalf. (?)
Crystal Kingdom, beautiful and filled with dynamics.
Solstice Spirits, haunting and hypnotic.
Shelter From the Cold, I'm really wishing for a warm fire and some wine....grrrr.....
Angels in the Snow. Peaceful and tranquil like many of the songs present. A strong piano line permeates the entire song.
Scarborough Fair is the longest track on the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Majesty, in melody personified January 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Golden, orange and red leaves rest upon the earth, as far as
mortal eye may see. Branches clad in them for the nonce are barren.
Frigid air caresses me from every side. Despite frigidity, a crisp
refreshment brings me comfort. Autumn's end is come, and a joyous
thought comes to my mind. Deep within, I know that the red and
golden leafed realm in which I stand is soon to become a wondrous
world bedecked in ivory petals robed in white radiance. The thought
beckons me, as if inviting me....to come back home. My heart is warm
as mightily blazing winter's hearth, as deep within I know that
soon I will be back in Ebonshire. I will be back home.

All about, glorious melody fills not only the air, but my senses.
Yea, my entire being is sated with it. Heavenly chorals flow through
my heart, mated gently with tender trickling piano, music-box chimes,
and regal tolling bells. Upon the air, they bear the hope of a king.
They bear great AQUILON'S WISH*, of peace on earth, and good will
toward men. My heart smiles all the more, as within my mind's eye I
behold King Aquilon seated upon his throne within a majestic hall of
pure crystal. I am not there yet, but it comforts me to know I will
be. The beautiful canticle I hear is a lovely reminder of that coming
meeting.

Even now, it is begun. Summer's azure sky is no more. Nay, The
heavens' hues have turn to gray, as ivory petals commence their fall
unto the Earth, soft as ivory teardrops, cascading to the earth Soon,
the very land will be thus blanketed. Gently gliding guitar, flowing
violin, and soft chorals blended wonderfully with piano fill my heart.
A song, to draw me ever closer to my home.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Majestic, Magical Christmas Album December 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Nox Arcana's third Christmas CD, "Winter's Majesty," more than lives up to its title. The songs here all resonate with a regal splendor, creating the atmosphere of an elegant, sumptuous holiday festival at a medieval palace. Among the standout tracks are the glorious mini-symphony of the title track; the ghostly, wistful "Solstice Spirits"; "Shelter From the Cold," which features a beautiful minstrel guitar and one of Joseph Vargo's most lovely and memorable melodies; and "Ivory Steeds," a gorgeous, stirring piano piece that is unforgettably haunting. Other great tracks include "Days of Olde," a quietly majestic piano and harpsichord ode with an introspective feeling, and Jeff Endemann's great vocal rendition of the classic "Scarborough Fair." This is truly a triumphant CD, and it will transport you back in time to winter renaissance festivals in the era of kings, minstrels and magic.

Although every Nox Arcana CD is an event, Joseph Vargo has carved out a very special niche with his Christmas albums. While these albums often feature the thunderous, adventurous anthems he has become known for, the CDs are also filled with many quieter, more poignant and romantic pieces that are the perfect soundtrack for peaceful evenings at home with friends and loved ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nox Arcana Winter's Majesty January 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this music just as much as their previous winter cds. I like this music for the mood it sets for the winter holidays, I get tired of the usual Christmas music & this really reflects the feeling of winter.

Hey, it's Nox Arcana, there's not much more that needs to be said. I have every single disc from them and have never been disappointed. This music is great for Halloween, or fantasy, or to just listen at any time.
