Garritan Community Christmas Vol. 9

Welcome to the 2012 Annual Garritan Community Christmas Album, Volume 9!


This Christmas Album is a collaborative effort of the Garritan Community and was made in the spirit of giving for the holidays.

For a ninth holiday season, a community of musicians from all over the world met on the Garritan community forum and volunteered their recordings of holiday music to be freely distributed. Each recording was created by a single musician. What they all have in common is the use of Garritan libraries, representing virtual software instruments, based on samples of real instruments. This album is a testament not only to the sophistication of music technology, but also to the skill of the composers, arrangers and programmers who have used these tools so remarkably well.

Thank you to all who submitted a song for the Christmas album. Also, a big thank you to Dan Kury who organized this effort and mastered the songs for the album.

We invite you to listen to the 13 wonderful tracks on the Garritan Community Christmas Player, download the MP3s and print out the album art – all for free!

Finally, let’s not forget the powerful force of the sentiments of the season and the inspiration behind the music. Each year we come back to these melodies and forms because they inspire us like no other.

May this wonderful holiday music warm your heart this season.

Gary Garritan
