Johanna Grüssner - voice
Mika Pohjola - piano, arranger & producer
These recognizable and comforting Christmas carols shed a fresh light to the favorite holiday with tender renditions and arrangements for voice - sometimes choir - piano, bass and various strings.
Gems such as O Come All Ye Faithful, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Good King Wenceslas and Joy to the World are interpreted by the silky voice of Johanna Grüssner, to bouncy and harmonically spicy arrangements by Mika Pohjola who also plays piano on this album.
Johanna Grüssner and Mika Pohjola, both of Finnish origin, have worked tightly together since 1993. They have previously released many jointly-produced albums in the Scandinavian folk and children's music domains, among them the fairy-tale albums Moomin Voices and Peter in the Blueberry Land.
