General comments: The conjunction of the gorgeous-voiced Susan McKeown and multinstrumentalist Lindsey Horner is a charming and powerful match.
All of the tracks that appeared on the tape were re-recorded, and in most cases the new versions have more complex arrangements that involve more instruments and players. This is one of the best seasonal albums ever. Didja know "Auld Lang Syne" could be so beautiful? Bet Burns didn't! I'd almost forgotten what a farking brilliant album this is Through the Bitter Frost and Snow is indeed mostly xmas music, and I personally find it a bit Susan McKeown & Lindsey Horner - Mighty Rain getting through the heavily jesus-y songs.
But the album is still worth owning, if only for "Auld Lang Syne. Susan McKeown & Lindsey Horner - Mighty Rain "The Mountain King. Actually, I really do like almost the entire disc. Some of it grates on me clearly, my tolerance for xmas music is rather lowbut I'd gladly have paid twice the price just for her version of "Auld Lang Syne.
Traditional and original winter music that holds up to listening even in July. I've been listening to it more closely, and it just keeps getting better and better. Even if you don't normally go for "Christmas" music which this mostly Aleph - Ayin Aleph - Ayin Aleph 2it's a wonderful mix of traditional, jazz, and folk that transcends the seasons.
