He Has Come (Fontaine House 31820) 1977


A meditative album of acoustic Christmas songs. Classical guitarist John Pell’s arrangements highlight such instruments as harp, flute, recorder, cello and woodwinds for a soothing European classical-folk mood. Includes ‘Silent Night’ in German, ‘What Child Is This’, ‘I Wonder As I Wander’ and ‘Cherry Tree Carol’ among others. I personally prefer this kind of thing to Amy Grant singing about chestnuts going pop pop pop. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
