    THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM - Stream music from the Forum thread!

    Enjoy the songs of the season while surfing Northern Sounds with the new embedded Christmas Player.

    [mov]http://www.garritan.com/xmasplayer.swf[/mov]

    You can select Continuous, Random or Repeat Play on the lower left of the player.


    The GPO Christmas Album is the 2nd annual collaborative effort of the GPO community and was put together in the spirit of giving for the holiday. A site with this year's GPO Christmas Album and last year's album is also up. There you can download the individual MP3's and the cover art and cd label. We are also replicating a limited number of compact discs. If any of you would like to request a free compact disc of the album, you may do so by sending a self-addressed envelope with sufficienct postage to the address provided on the Christmas page.

    Here's the link to the Christmas page:

    A heartfelt thank you to everyone that contributed and submitted songs for this project. We had too many songs submitted and could not include them all. Next year we'll aim on producing a double album. And a special thanks to Santa Dan Kury (DPDan) for all his magnificent work putting this all together. And thanks PapChalk for making it possible to embed this player in the forum.

    This is special because it was made by people from our community - a community comprised of musicians young and old, from different countries and languages, from differing skill leves and training, rom varying backgrounds and musical tastes - but all united in making this special collection.

    I plan to spend Christmas morning unwrapping presents, dining and having yuletime delight while listening to this album. The music will spread much joy this holiday season.


    Merry Christmas!

    That Jingle bells ragtime version is fantastic! The Christmas song isn't my cup of tea - a little too saccharine for my cynical British ears - but every song here (cheesy ones included) is great. Just shows how much competition people like me have...

    I don't actually use GPO, I use what may be considered 'the devil's instrument' - EWQL. Despite the friction between that place and this, I thank all of the developers and composers on all forums like this one for inspiring my and terrifying me with your talent!
