An album as varied as Christmas Music itself, "Joy On High" takes a jubilantly diverse approach to the holiday canon, taking no qualms with placing an intricately arranged adaption of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker Suite" right alongside the swing rave-up of "Jingle in The Mood." While there is great variety in the music recorded, the album never fails to feel like a cohesive whole as all songs are brought to new life on the shimmering sounds of the Celtic harp and hammered dulcimer.
Alongside these well-known standards, Seasons has also placed two of their own compositions: The gentle "Christmas Night" explores the feelings of Saint Joseph during that very first Christmas, While "Last Dance" pays a tribute to all those who spend the holidays apart from loved ones in service to our country. Both songs are sung beautifully by founding Seasons member Mary-Kate Spring Lee, an award-winning folk artist in her own right. Whether it is breathing a fresh spirit into a much loved holiday classic, or introducing your ears to a new Christmas song that feels like an old friend, "Joy On High" is sure to become an essential part of of your holiday music collection for years to come!
