Destined to be a classic,
This review is from: Jon Schmidt Christmas (Audio CD)
I own a lot of instrumental Christmas music albums. This, along with George Winston's December, are my two all-time favorites. I can listen to them over and over and still have moments of "aaah" and awe as a particular passage brings joy to my day. There is a sweet intensity in Jon's playing that totally captures the beauty of the meaning of the season. His renditions are inspiring and help create a marvelous mood of peace and hope.
Gaelic Blessing never ceases to cause me to pause in whatever I'm doing, be filled with gratitude, have a few wee tears in my eyes then play it again once or twice.
Jon is beloved by four generations of our family from toddlers to grandpa great. Everyone starts smiling when his music is playing.
If you're new to the Schmidt experience I would recommend A Walk in the Woods and Jon Schmidt Christmas as the first CDs to add to your collection. You won't regret it.
