Notes & Reviews:

"With 'Dream Season,' I set out to assemble a collection of carols that would capture some of the tranquillity, warmth, innocence, and optimism that make Christmas such an extraordinary time of year. It is my hope that this album might one day contribute to the atmosphere of some one's own special Christmas moment." -Yolanda Kondonassis

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Yolanda Kondonassis (harp); Jurij Konje (percussion).

Recording information: Lenna Hall, Chautauqua, NY (03/24/1997-03/28/1997).

Dream Season: The Christmas Harp is an enchanting collection of luxurious interpretations of classic traditional Christmas carols and hymns like "Greensleeves," "Ave Maria," "The First Noel," "Do You Hear What I Hear?," "We Three Kings of Orient Are," "Silent Night," and "O Little Town of Bethlehem." It's quite lovely and ideal for both formal and casual holiday affairs. ~ Rodney Batdorf
