Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a spoken word album, with much classical music in the background, and the words are spoken in German. The poetry is by the narrator, Michael Dangl who is accompanied by flutist, Maria Fedotova. The text tells the story of a Christmas skeptic who is won over by the spirit of Christmas via many life events, the people he meets and especially the background music, which ranges from Bach to Piazolla to Karmanov and more. If you know German, love Christmas and music, the album is especially charming. This is a spoken word album, with much classical music in the background, and the words are spoken in German.
