Featuring “The Christmas Story”

This week we are letting you know about one of my Christmas CDs called “The Christmas Story.” It was recorded on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 2001. Since most Christmas music on the market is recorded in the summer (so it’s available in time for the holidays), I have always known that this CD had the holiday spirit infused in a very magical way.

The Daily OM listened to this CD and wrote a review. I am humbled by their beautiful words…

Review by Daily OM:

“Harpist Tami Briggs is a sound healer whose angelic, gentle playing bypasses all resistance to touch the root chord of the human soul. She honed her healing skill via personal appearances at hospitals and hospices, bringing her soothing sounds right up to the beds of those most in need. Bringing her knowledge of healing into the recording studio, Briggs makes harp music that’s simple, sweet, and deeply soothing. Embracing a less-is-more strategy, The Christmas Story interprets classic holiday standards into gentle solo-harp pieces, potent enough to hush a room of chatting relatives, relaxing enough to play in a child’s bedroom to help them fall asleep on Christmas Eve. And if you should find yourself alone for the holidays, Briggs becomes an angelic friend, her music a shimmering presence rooting you back to humanity.

Capturing the vibe of a live performance, The Christmas Story offers audio quality sharp enough to give the illusion that Briggs is playing right in the same room as you mull through your presents or nap on the couch in a sea of torn wrapping paper….The CD wraps up with the feeling of belonging to something larger than oneself, as Briggs’ gentle touch with the harp suffused even her frequent impassioned glissandos with warmth. More than just a bunch of carols played on the harp, Briggs skirts in and around the familiar melodies with the finesse of a jazz soloist, albeit one with no agenda of showing off chops, but rather of hitting all the right notes to warm the back of your neck and open your heart. Put on The Christmas Story when you need a gentle reminder of what the holidays are about: peace, love, and spiritual regeneration.”

Comments on my CDs!

There are lots of places on the internet to write comments, including on this blog! 

I was recently reviewing comments made about my CDs on www.Amazon.com and found three comments on my Christmas CD, Christmas Music for Tranquility:

  • “This is the way Christmas music was meant to be played. It reminds me of a more peaceful time (before gift cards!). This is the perfect background music when you are visiting with family and friends around the tree.”
  •  “Do yourself a favor and purchase this CD. You will enjoy beautiful, peaceful music during the holidays.”
  • “Tired of department store Christmas ‘musac’? Here’s a CD for you … old-fashioned instruments – no vocals – just pure sound … e n j o y !”

It is fun to share these with you and if you would like your own copy of this CD, click here.

Last year, when the Daily OM wrote a review and shared it with their 1 million customers, I knew they understood the special grace of this solo harp CD.  I am deeply touched and humbled by their beautiful words…
