Andriana blends heartfelt vocals with acoustic guitar, violin, mandolin, and piano to evoke the spirit of the Christmas season. Her rich vocal harmonies and beautifully woven arrangements of traditional Ukrainian Carols and Shchedrivky (Songs of Good Fortune for the New Year) reflect olden days of carolers proceeding through snowy village streets. Selections include well known Ukrainian carols and greetings, as well as a few rare gems. Highlights: a breathtaking version of Silent Night (sung in English and Ukrainian), and a gorgeous arrangement of Shchedryk (Carol of the Bells) with 5 part vocal harmony and exquisite violin solos. The CD provides a brief synopsis of each song in English, and appeals to listeners of all ages. Truly a gem of a holiday recording (reminiscent of Kvitk'as style...)! Back by popular demand!
