Sarah McLachlan Wonderland LP
Christmas Album Features Guest Artists Emmylou Harris, Martha Wainwright & Canadian Quartet Half Moon Run!
Multi-Platinum and three time Grammy Winner and legendary singer songwriter
Sarah McLachlan celebrates the most wonderful time of the year with her holiday
album "Winter Wonderland" on vinyl LP. Wonderland sparkles with fresh, inspired
interpretations of traditional and contemporary holiday classics including
"Winter Wonderland" and "Let It Snow".
"I love everything about Christmas and this record was a joy to make,"
The album features classics such as “Silver Bells” reimagined into a shimmering,
orchestrated picturesque tale as well as “Angels We Have Heard On High,” a
percussive hymn of adoration and Randy Newman’s forlorn “Snow” from the 1960s.
Emmylou Harris contributes vocals on “Go Tell It On The Mountain”, also
featuring Martha Wainwright, and “Away In A Manager,” a new holiday song
reinvented as a country shuffle.
Members of Canadian quartet, Half Moon Run, play on five tracks and helped
McLachlan flesh out some of the arrangements, including “Huron Carol,” Canada’s
oldest Christmas song. “They’re all in their mid-to-late 20s. They’re incredible
musicians,” McLachlan says. Rounding out the guests is the world famous
Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra, who perform on three songs, including “Let It
Snow,” “Silver Bells,” and “Huron Carol.”
McLachlan enlisted orchestral arranger Brian Byrne to handle the particulars.
“We had decided early on that it would be great to have string arrangements,”
McLachlan says. “We left some space for that and sent the arrangements to him
and said ‘Work your magic.’ He did.”
Sarah has sold over 40 million albums in her career and is one of the most
respected female artists in music today.
