An audiophile's delight, this classic album mixes traditional carols, variations on Pachelbel's Canon, and Winston originals—resulting in a solo piano program of timeless and exultant beauty. This 20th-Anniversary Edition also includes the bonus tracks "A Christmas Song" and "Sleep, Baby Mine."
"You can tell winter is on its way because George Winston's 'December' CD is back on the Billboard charts—since its release in 1982, 'December' has reappeared annually just before the first frost. That album of starkly atmospheric solo piano … [is] the all-time best-seller on Windham Hill, a record label that with its haunting, mostly acoustic-instrumental music, distinctive graphics and almost fanatical attention to quality became intimately identified with that vague music/lifestyle moniker 'New Age'."—Washington Post
