NEW RELEASE from 5mbs sponsor, ABC

This new release on the ABC Classic label and supplied to us by the ABC, is titled ‘Christmas Music for Harp’, featuring harpist Alice Giles.

In 1938, Carlos Salzedo published 2 Christmas pieces: Concert Variations on Adeste Fidelis (O Come, All Ye Faithful) and an arrangement of Silent Night. A virtuoso transcription of Jingle Bells followed a few years later. These three works were so popular that Salzedo was asked to write more. For this disc, Alice Giles has recorded all of those pieces, together with four Australian Christmas carols by W.G. James.
