Well, I’m up at 4:00 this a.m. and looking around at music online (like everyone else, right?) because I happened to see a cd in a Victorian catalog I just knew I should look into. As an artist, I’m always on the lookout for music that is perfect for getting the creative juices flowing. Not only because of the peacefulness it brings, but also for the nice memories the music stirs up of days gone by, a great combination for any cd.
I found two that really caught my eye and I listened to the samples and I believe they are simply “must haves” for everyone that host Thanksgiving get-togethers. These cd’s really bring out the spirit of Thanksgiving, and you’ll know what I mean when you listen to the samples.
The two I found…so far..are “We Gather Together” a cd by Craig Duncan.
"We Gather Together" By Craig Duncan
The dulcimer and mandolin are used here, with other beautiful instruments, a clear giveaway, that this will be a great cd! I looked on Amazon for this one,but it said this cd would not be available until October 11 and I didn’t see any link where I could listen to samples, so I looked further.
I found this at clevershoppers.com and you could listen to samples as well. I believe the price was about $9.99. Please look it up. You will not be disappointed.
The other cd is called “Thanksgiving” A Windham Hill Collection. Music By George Winston.
"Thanksgiving" A Windham Hill Collection
This one you can listen to on Amazon and the price is also in the $10.00 range. You will also see that there is a vast collection of Windham Hill favorites for every holiday, and that’s great! The reviews are all good reviews, and this leads me to think that I just may start a collection soon!
I believe I found a sample on you tube. Listen:
There it is. Look these two music cds up and you might just be in for a treat. Put your feet up, turn up the volume and you’re in for the perfect escape from the world… for a while, anyway. 🙂 Enjoy!
