2FM089 Happy Christmas Quintet

Posted on Jun 07, 2023

2FM089 Happy Christmas Quintet is a fun, upbeat album of Christmas songs and carols for string quartet and piano. Tracks cover a range of festive moods, from tender, heartfelt moments (“O Christmas Tree”, “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear”) to childlike excitement (“Deck The Halls”, “I Saw Three Ships”). In comparison to the more traditional Christmas album 2FM059 Christmas String Quartet, these tracks feature a bright, modern sound, full of lush, jazzy harmonies and bouncy, whimsical energy. The album also includes the American settings of some carols (“Away In A Manger”, “O Little Town Of Bethlehem”). 2FM089 Happy Christmas Quintet is written by Robert Allen Elliott.
