Arabesque Records Announces a New Release for Christmas 2012

Christmas LullabiesArabesque Records announces its newest release (CD Z6845) of the internationally known recording artist, baritone Steven Kimbrough. His distinguished performing and recording career spans operatic, musical theater, concert, art and folk song repertory performed and recorded throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia. Twice his recordings of arts songs have been nominated as “Best Vocal Re-cording of the Year.”

For the current release, “Christmas Lullabies,” Kimbrough brings together an exquisite group of songs from Austria, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Scotland, Spain, and the USA. He demonstrates once again his multi-faceted vocal art from elegant pianissimo to eloquent poetic narration. The songs, from the 15th to 21st centuries, express the poetical and musical imagination of authors and composers of how the Christ child might have been sung to sleep by Mother Mary, Joseph, and the angels. The diverse musical arrangements by Mary K. Jackson complement the varied compositional styles from folk to art song. Included are “Maria Wiegenlied” (Mary’s Christmas LullabiesLullaby) by distinguished composer, Max Reger, and “Christkindleins Wiegenlied” (The Christ Child’s Lullaby) by Viennese composer Erich J. Wolff, and well known favorites—Appalachian Carol “Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head,” “The Coventry Carol,” and the Italian song “Dormi, dormi, o bel Bambin.”
