Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Fiona Joy Hawkins has made some great music in the past, and now she makes a tasteful seasonal album.

Walking in the Air becomes a becalmed lullaby with some excellent piano playing.

Silent Night is rendered beautifully and with a demeanor that guarantees a fresh take on the song.

O Come O Come Emmanuel gets an equally tranquil and fresh take. Hawkins piano sounds wonderful as ever.

Flight of the Snowbird is an exceedingly lovely song that she inhabits easily.

I don’t normally review Christmas albums but this one is too good to leave out.
