Stars and Promises
price: $15.00 + shipping
Stars and Promises is a Christmas album featuring six original Peter Mayer songs, including a collaboration with acclaimed hymn writer Herbert Brokering, entitled, "Wings Of Angels." The album also celebrates traditional carols, such as "Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel," "Angels We Have Heard On High," "The Little Drummer Boy," and others. They are performed with fresh arrangements, incorporating a variety of stylistic influences from classical ("Christmas Overture"), folk ("Sing Joy"), popular ("This Christmas") and jazz ("What Child Is This").
On Stars and Promises, Mayer has added the sounds of Native American wood flute, piano, percussion from around the world, and a string trio to the distinctive acoustic guitar and vocal work you have heard on his previous offerings.
"The title track 'Stars And Promises' is really one of the most beautiful brand-new duet Christmas songs of new millennium."

No question: this is the BEST Christmas CD! It is always in our player at Christmas time. We can listen to it over and over and still enjoy it. The music is so cheerful, beautiful and unique. Peter really is a very talented musician and we are always so happy to see him when he comes to our area. We enjoy all of Peter's music, but this CD is at the top of the list. If you don't have it, you really need to get it... you'll love it! We have bought copies for friends and family for gifts.
