Notes & Credits

Deborah Henson-Conant - The Gift

A note from the performer: In creating these arrangements, I had the pleasure of improvising fantasies on many carols I’ve known for years, and of discovering many traditional carols that were completely new to me. I hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as I enjoyed recording it. Deborah Henson-Conant
