When Cross Rhythms first reviewed this 2009 album Tom's name wasn't shown on the front sleeve. Now it's been re-issued and this time the late Jesus music pioneer and pianist on many a fine instrumental album is given due credit. Those in the know have acknowledged Tom as one of the finest contemporary pianists around and here he elegantly approaches the Christmas songbook bringing keyboard dexterity to "Angels We Have Heard On High", "In The Bleak Midwinter", "Carol Of The Bells" and 12 other Christmas evergreens. An ideal accompaniment to the holiday season.

Product Description
It’s the sort of album that makes you wish you could play this way. One piano, fifteen songs yet a whole world of possibilities, tones and textures.

Tom Howard, the renowned pianist, composer and arranger sadly passed away in 2009. This special album was his last recording and unlocks the secrets and upgrades the impact of timeless classics like ‘Silent Night’, ‘Joy To The World’, and ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’. Every track emerges refreshed and re-inspired.
