CHRISTMAS TIME AGAIN…

Blackmore’s Night will re-release their Christmas album “Winter Carols” with three extra songs on September 22nd digitally and on October 13th on CD. These are “Deck The Halls”, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Oh Christmas Tree”, all of them arranged by Ritchie Blackmore. “The holiday season has always embodied joy, love, peace and togetherness,” says Candice. “We are entranced by the magic of the season. The sentiments of the holidays are what we try to express in our music year round — so this CD is a natural progression. All the music we craft and create has always been about love, unity and friendship. These songs as a whole are beautiful unifying carols. Feel the warmth of friendship! Everyone can join in.”
“The origin of the word ‘carol’ means ‘dance’,'” adds Ritchie. “I am naturally attracted to these melodies. As a kid, I would go from house to house during the holiday time and sing them just to earn some money. As an adult, I thought I could play them and make more money!”
