This collection features new arrangements of four traditional Christmas folk songs and one original instrumental interlude. I first heard most of these songs on the album American Folk Songs for Christmas (the Seeger family and friends, 1992). The Seegers allowed the texts and tunes to shine through unadorned and transparent arrangements and I approached these new settings in a similar spirit.
