Writing Music Monday: Christmas Bells by James Edwards

[cover] James Edwards - Christmas BellsThis isn’t necessarily writing music, but I love to have this album playing regularly in the week or so before Christmas, and thought I should share.

Christmas Bells is an album of nothing but solo classical guitar interpretations of Christmas classics. It is quiet. It is lovely. It is perfect.

James Edwards is a professional classical guitarist who has released many CDs, and seems to dabble just a little in Creative Commons releases, having three in total — this one through Jamendo, and two on Magnatune. Considering that he’s no spring chicken, I think he ought to be rewarded for trying something so counter to the old prevailing wisdom about giving music away.

Note: Probably no music post next week. If not, Merry Christmas to all.
