Album Notes
This latest project is a unique instrumental collection of classical and early European folk songs. Themes originate with guitar or piano and include cello, english horn, bass, flute and accordion - with a dash of violin, mandolin, hurdy gurdy and bells. One piece is a cappella supported with a bass drone.

Guest artists include a small cast of talented muscians; Christine Gunn plays delightful melodies on cello and Karen Gheorghui (who also performed on Makria, a past CD of Chris') brings back the beauty of the English horn. Tom TeRonde adds delicate bass lines to many of the pieces and Carl Dexter mixes in a few spices to round out the themes.

The majority of tracks were produced by Sohre at Fleeting Echoes, her home studio in the Pacific NW, though she used her portable setup to record a few tracks on the fly. The final mix was completed at DreamKitchen Studio in Olympia, WA along with long-time friend, Carl Dexter.

WINTER is printed on 100% recycled materials with soy-based ink. Cover photography is courtesy of Marty Eigenberger.

Sohre's Winter is Magical
I have to say I love the Winter CD. I am in no way a music critic but I do know what I like. And, Winter is magical! The mixture of tones and textures transport you such that you feel like you are experiencing the music not just hearing it or listening to it. Well done to all involved! Great cover photo too!


Compositions are beautiful and very easy to listen too. The mix of classical and folk melodies were perfect dinner music for my annual holiday gathering. Thank you Chris for making it so lovely!


Such lovely and relaxing music. It is perfect for the holidays. Interesting arrangements and instrumentation. Simple, yet a delicious meal!I Loved every note. It is already a favorite!!!!


I love this music
I di not know what to expect with this CD and to my delight it was just wonderful. I could listen to it all day long. I just wished it was snowing outside. That would creat the right mood. The last song, Winter Nights, I knew as kid. I started humming along and at first I could not figure out why I knew this song. But it all came back and believe it or not but there are Icelandic lirics to this song. Great job Chris. Just wonderful

I Love This Album!!
It’s been years since I have actually sat and listened to a CD. Really listened. Far too often I put on music as light background and then forget all about it. You can do that with Chris Sohre’s Winter Album, of course, if you want to, or you can also let the melodies and harmonies wrap themselves around you. They just draw you in. You think you know where the music is going and it does, except for just a slight variation, an unexpected twist. This is a wonderful album!! I’m hoping there will be three other seasons forthcoming. Starting next spring?

Wonderful Treat
Chris Sohre's Winter is a delightful find. Especially good for quiet evenings during this often hectic time of year. I love the flute duet; somehow it conjures images of swans making love. And since I love anything with English horns this album is a wonderful treat, the Winter Nights piece, in particular. Keep it coming, Chris!

une saison á ne pas louper..
Un album composé de morceaux de musique classique revisités par Chris Sohre.. Moment de détente et de relaxation assuré !

Jim Eagan

Wonderful arrangements and fine musicianship abound in this collection of pieces that exemplify the joy and mystery of the season...simply beautiful.

New Music for the Season
I was sorely in need of some new music for the season and this is perfect. That voice - those harmonies - the whole package is a joy to listen to. "Byla Cesta" gives new meaning to the term "haunting melody." Thank you, thank you, thank you, Chris et al!

Winter by Chris Sohre
I've listened to this CD now several times, at work, in the car and on holiday vacation and it's time to express oneself.
It moves me because of the cultrual collection she has provided. I enjoy my culture and various other cultures and these pieces gave me an impression of being very familiar with all of them through a seasonal connection. A few had a unique instrumental arrangement that for me could have been used throughout the pieces but that wouldn't have been the tradition. I'm happy to have another one of her CD titles and I would say for the market value she has kept to her Golden standards.
