Overview

A winning combination of Windham Hill artists unite on this spiritual, sometimes bittersweet Thanksgiving collection. Highlights include John Doan's graceful interpretation of "Amazing Grace," Eileen Ivers's poignant "Bygone Days," George Winston's piano classic "Thanksgiving," and "The Saviour's Universal Prayer/And Again Heavenly Father," a stirring, meditative offering from William Coulter and Barry Phillips. Other standouts include Windham Hill founder Will Ackerman's "The Gathering," Celtic harpist Lisa Lynne's "Allelujah," and Tracy and Thea Silverman's "Simple Gifts." Listening to Windham Hill's inspired collection makes for a wonderful way to celebrate the joy of Thanksgiving with friends and family.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Robert Taylor
A Thanksgiving recording? That's what the folks at Windham Hill have proposed. Whether or not the theme truly makes sense is quickly made irrelevant by the beautiful performances. Of particular note is the stunning performance of "We Gather Together" by Paul McCandless, Philip Aaberg, and Michael Manring. The entire set is a consistently beautiful listen that can be, and should be, enjoyed year round.

This CD really lets your mind rest and wander to all for which you are thankful. Good fall sounds including nice arrangements of the popular Simple Gifts and We Gather Together.
