Album Spotlight: Fisher - December

I have a very pretty, more relaxed sounding album for you tonight. From the duo of Kathy Fisher and Ron Wasserman, better known as Fisher, comes December, a collection of 7 Christmas carols plus an original song.

December was originally available at the now-defunct MP3.com and has since been posted by the band on their own website each year. I originally came across the album late last year, but I didn't have much of a chance to listen to it then; this year it has become one of my favourites. The traditional songs are all given some sparse but very beautiful arrangements, usually consisting of acoustic guitar, strings, and vocals. Their version of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" is one of the best I have ever heard, and the a capella "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" sounds amazing with its layers of vocals. Another highlight of the album is "Christmas Face", an original song that has a very melancholy feel to it, along the lines of Joni Mitchell's "River" or Sarah McLachlan's "Wintersong" - if you like sad Christmas songs, they don't get much better than this. A highlight of every song is Kathy Fisher's vocals - she has a very unique and beautiful sounding voice which really adds an amazing touch to these songs.

December can be found for free on Fisher's website. Happy listening, and I'll be back as soon as possible with some more great Christmas music for you.
