Just in time for the holidays and the contemplative days of winter ahead, Tarith Cote is pleased to release International Celtic World Vocalist, Composer and Woodstock, Illinois native, Jillian LaDage’s Enchanted Winter. Featuring nine winter seasonal pieces alongside lesser known traditional songs with a wide range of musical nuances from Celtic to Middle Eastern. The literary work of Sir Walter Scott’s “Christmas In The Olden Time” set in hauntingly medieval strains lead to the traditional inspired lament “Come Winter Ground” into Middle East dance inspired rhythms of “Bergamask Dance.” While being immersed in this enchanted world, create your own art from the original hand drawn cover by local Woodstock artist, Denise Wyse, with the adult coloring book inspired page available as a bonus download.
“Out of all the seasons winter perhaps embodies the greatest sense of mystery and wonder. Exploring the diverse celebrations and traditions of this season I hoped to discover what indeed is this enchantment, which is only found during these few months of the year and leads us into quiet contemplative months or joy and awe.”
