ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Philip Wesley's 9th album. A blend of traditional and timeless Christmas songs with a wintry mix of Philip Wesley's signature piano style. A new favorite for the holidays.

"The holidays have always been a magical time for me. Especially during childhood. For many though the holiday's can be a stressful time. I present to you 18 tracks to listen to during the holidays to relax and unwind. To find healing, peace and rejuvenation. With these thoughts in mind I give you my 9th album... The Magic of Christmas."

From MainlyPiano
"The Magic Of Christmas" is pianist/composer/arranger Philip Wesley’s second Christmas album. His first, "Comfort and Joy," was released in 2005. One of the biggest differences between the two albums is that "The Magic Of Christmas" includes eight original pieces, some of which are quite short (under two minutes), and add a beautiful personal touch to the album. All eighteen tracks are on the quiet, thoughtful side that provides a welcome respite from the often frantic pace of the holiday season. Some light orchestration was added to a couple of the tracks. The orchestrations and mastering were both done by Doug Hammer of Dreamworld Productions, and the sound quality is velvety smooth.

The ten arrangements include “O Holy Night,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” a slow and mellow version of “Jingle Bells,” “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” and “Auld Lang Syne.”

“The Whisper of Winter” is the first of the original pieces, and is a short, gentle prelude that sets the tone of the album. “Winter Has Come” is very free and relaxed and expresses the chill and crystalline beauty of the first snow of winter. “Home Is Where The Heart Is” is much more melodic with feelings of nostalgia and fond memories. Much of “Memories Of Christmas Past” is played in the upper registers of the piano, giving it a feeling of childlike innocence. Subtle strings, bells and choir voices enhance the sense of wonder and poignance. This is my favorite piece on the album. “New Fallen Snow” returns to the freedom and ambience of some of the earlier tracks, painting a peaceful soundscape that is quiet and magical. “She Looks Like An Angel” is a love song, pure and simple! “Christmas Without Them” is also lightly orchestrated and expresses the sadness that comes from the loss of loved ones and seems especially painful during the holidays - gorgeous and deeply heartfelt. The title track is much lighter with a bit of sparkle added!

"The Magic Of Christmas" will be a Christmas treasure for many years to come!
