If you've heard "Songs From the Labyrinth" you'll have a better idea what to expect from "If On A Winters Night". Sting, in his maturity, seems lately to have been drawn to ancient music: consider also that this recording, like "Labyrinth", was released on Deutsche Grammaphon, a classical label.
The music itself is flawless. It has a keen sound quality - particularly on the pieces with stripped-down instrumentation - and the arrangements are careful.
If you are interested at all in Sting as a person, the liner notes will prove invaluable. There are six closely-printed pages written by Sting: musings on his agnosticism, his childhood memories of winter, the seasonal cycle as it affects humans. It's interesting and introspective.
I would classify this CD not as "Christmas", as I've seen it described, but as "solstice". It reminds me a little of the New Age/Pagan CDs that comprise my favourite winter listening.
I love this CD. It is full of lovely winter songs, beautifully interpreted by a first-class musician.
This is truly one of my most cherished CDs; it is a winter CD and in my opinion, not solely for the Christmas season. It is wonderful to listen to while sitting by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate or cider, on a cold winter's night.
I was thrilled to stumble upon it. Bravo Sting!!!
