A compilation of Christmas carols and excerpts of well-known classical pieces. A contemplative, instrumental piece for those who would enjoy 10 minutes of reflective time on our Savior's birth. The idea was inspired by my dad, Hank Lankford, who had heard Beethoven's 2nd movement of the Pathetique Sonata interwoven with Silent Night on the radio. When trying to recreate his idea, I decided to expound on this idea using a variety of Christmas hymns and classical pieces. This arrangement was my gift to my dad many years ago. It was also my father who suggested I record and put this on YouTube. With the help of my son, Chris, we did it! Here it is.... Merry Christmas, Dad. I love you!
