Christmas Vault: Bel Canto!

11 12 2009

Back in the middle of this decade, Atlantic Records put out the most Sunday Brunchy Xmas album ever! Winter, Fire & Snow featured such adult contemporary staples as Phoebe Snow, Robbie Robertson, Tuck and Patti, and Julia Fordham.  It was oddly hit-and-miss, but there was one real standout track for me,  Norwegian duo Bel Canto’s Agnes Dei, a gorgeously haunting interpretation that falls somewhere in between Dead Can Dance and Delerium. Chillout gold!

I’m hoping to have time to post one of these a day from my collection, but don’t hold me to that!
