Description

At Christmas time, perhaps more than at any other time of year, we listen equally to songs that are very new and songs that are far older, perhaps, than we even know. Christmas Magic with the Kruger Brothers covers the whole range, from the centuries old “O Come All Ye Faithful,” to show tunes from the 20s and 30s, to a song that was written just this year (“The Lights in Our Village”). There’s some music trivia in here, too: a cowboy song written by a Virginian (Steve Weisberg, “Christmas for Cowboys”); a Hawaiian novelty song written by a mechanical engineer (R. Alex Anderson, “Mele Kalikimaka”); and a song about snowy weather written during a heat wave in Hollywood, California (Sammy Cahn, “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow”). From pop hits (“I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” “Winter Wonderland”) to period music (“Greensleeves”), in this collection the Kruger Brothers revisit the joy, the hopes, the humour, and the complexity of the holiday season.
