The Ghost of Winters Past

The Ghost of Winters Past

About the show

Playing tracks by

Hermione Harvestman, Second Thought, Inishkea Mystic Voices, Nick drake, The Pro Arte Orchestra. and more.

A mix of new and old music inspired by winter and the approaching festive season. It includes echoes of Christmas past from Shakespeare, The Box of Delights and a recounting of the Great Freeze of 1963.
I put the mix together with the idea in mind of waking to find the land white with the nights snow and the initial excitement that brings in everyone of all ages.....then the reality of what the weather means kicks in - as reflected by the Great Freeze commentary.

I am glad you enjoyed it. I had great fun hunting down the right samples to set the mood of this piece but that was one that came to mind straight from the off.

Beautiful stuff... and quite moving actually, tapping into idealized fragmented memories of Christmastimes gone...
