Overview

Paul Richard Evans's book, THE CHRISTMAS BOX, is a huge bestseller at six million copies and counting. In case you haven't read the story -- already a tradition in many families -- it's about a busy and preoccupied father who discovers a Christmas box full of love letters from an old woman to her dead daughter and, with the help of an angel, learns the true meaning of Christmas. This never-fail tearjerker now has a score, thanks to pianist and composer Paul Cardall who combines arrangements of traditional carols with original tunes inspired by Evans's story. A few lines of text accompany each song to help set the mood. Even if you don't know the story, the music is very moving and lyrical. And if you can't be sentimental at Christmas time, when can you be? The warmth of Cardall's music is enhanced by delicate arrangements with keyboards, acoustic guitar, cello, children's choir, and vocalist Allison Morris on "Silent Night." Like the book, THE CHRISTMAS BOX recording will make you stop to reconsider the ways of the heart.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Paul Cardall's The Christmas Box interprets Richard Paul Evans' best-selling holiday book into jazz piano arrangements of traditional carols and original pieces. The book's themes of family, love, and happiness are reflected in tracks like "Our Little Angel," "The Christmas Box," "Silent Night," and "The First Noel." Sure to please Evans' many fans, The Christmas Box is a fitting companion piece to the writer's modern holiday classic.
