“A solo harp album of medieval Christmas splendor.”

Twin Cities harpist Stephanie Claussen spent the year 2015 fulfilling one of her long-term dreams: arranging and refining twenty-one of her favorite carols and tunes. “French carols are the best,” says Claussen, listing the smell of wood smoke, the taste of orange zest, the appearance of the sky on a clear cold night, and the color red as impressions she associates with the album.

Claussen’s album intentionally incorporates a variety of well-loved and lesser-known carols. She crafted original interludes and countermelodies for most of the pieces on the album, aiming to season familiar melodies with just enough spice to keep audiences surprised while steering clear of modern harmonies. Claussen says she’s going for an ancient flavor on this project.

Light So Brilliant is now a music book! Read more here. Buy the sheet music in the Twin Cities at Musicmakers in Stillwater, or order online at MelBay.com. Visit Claussen’s YouTube channel for tips and videos.

CD Reviews:

“Listening to Stephanie Claussen’s new Christmas album makes me feel like I’m exploring Narnia when in reality I’m dealing with traffic on an overcast drive. If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is!” -Missy

“I love it! Listened to it three times straight while driving to the cities.” – Patti

“BEAUTIFUL, thank you. I’m going to listen to it all year long.” -Marjie

This solo harp album would also be perfect to enjoy by the fire, or while sipping a hot cuppa and taking in the majesty of a fully decorated tree. You’ll hear holiday favorites such as “We Three Kings” and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”… but that’s not all. Claussen also stocks the track listings with a delicate rendition of “Bouree d’Avignon” and other rewarding offerings, providing a full spectrum of beautiful music … it’s well worth a listen! -Marc Gunn from the Celtic Christmas Podcast
