SilentNight.wav by Charlie Chan published on 2012-12-04T09:47:19Z 'Sleep in heavenly peace. Everywhere you go at Christmas time you hear the same old songs over and over again. They start to drive you mad! I decided to record new chilled-out versions of these lovely Christmas carols and contribute to a calm and relaxed vibe over the holiday season. These are gentle, jazz renditions of timeless classics like Silent Night, Jingle Bells and The Little Drummer Boy. When you listen to them, I hope you'll feel a magical festive feeling. Peace on Earth!'
