Very beautiful music.  I imagine this CD being a way to heal from holiday stress, or to settle into a more sane frame of mind and heart around the holidays.  Bruce Bartlett, Crown Microphones. 

Great recording.  I especially like the clarinet work. K.H., band director.

If you have valued our previous recordings Midnight Clear is sure to
touch your heart in a very special way!!!

Imagine...  The healing presence of Anne's Celtic Harp combined with...
the bell like clarity of Gary's hammered dulcimer...
the primitive spiritual qualities of his wooden flutes and whistles.

Combine this...  With the enveloping warmth of the new Kurzweil keyboard, and the rich fullness of woodwind duets and quartets, presented in uniquely touching arrangements.

Share this...  Gift for Christ's birthday with your family, friends, and yourself.  It is sure to become one of your most meaningful holiday experiences.
 

 

Anne Wakenhut: Celtic harp & keyboard

In addition to her work as a  musician and her volunteer services as a Certified Music Practitioner, Anne is employed as a special education instructor and utilizes a wide variety of creative approaches to assist the growth of her young students.

This recording provided me with some new creative opportunities.  With the multi-tracking capacities now available in our home studio, I was able to combine my new Kurtzweil keyboard with my Celtic harp.  I truly enjoyed experimenting with the wide variations of color and mood I was able to add with the keyboard.  I hope these additions will add many meaningful opportunities to your listening experience. 


Gary Wakenhut: Irish flutes & whistles, clarinet, pan flute, & hammered dulcimer

Gary augments his profession as a musician by volunteering his services as a Certified Music Practitioner with children experiencing severe disabilities, nursing home and hospice patients.  He also works within his community and church organizing & training volunteer groups. 

New software opened up all sorts of possibilities with this recording.  I could combine the large variety of flutes, whistles and other woodwinds I love in the same selections. 

It was an exciting moment for me when two years of intense labor culminated in the release of this, our newest and most challenging recording to date.   It is a special pleasure to share our creation with you.
