Internationally acclaimed cellist, James Kreger, has created a Christmas album with a difference. In his own words: "The more I thought about it, the more I realized that the thrill of engaging the most profound and challenging cello masterpieces does not inhibit my deep affection for these Christmas melodies or my desire to 'sing' them, as so many people around the world love to do. My aim is to present them from my own perspective, in fashions that maximize their beauty and bring out their unexpected qualities." The result is an album of Christmas music skilfully arranged with the cello taking the vocal line.
