I present to you the gift of my first Yule Time album, and my first truly proper album.

I honestly did put a lot of work into this project, having started it back in September [2014]…where it was then only a concept.

This track selection consists of personally chosen, mostly secular, Yule Time [or Christmas, if you will] songs, which span from previous centuries into more modern times.

At 46 minutes and 51 seconds, this is hands down my longest album…But for 24 songs, it was a little bit shocking that this still did not manage to fill an entire hour. Most of these tracks are really short…like, one to two minutes short…A few don’t even hit a full minute…For some of these tracks, it was an editorial decision not to allow them to go on too long.

Not really much else to say about this album, except that I am very happy to have completed it and released it to the community.

Happy Holidays!
