Soundboard Review, September 2009
“Here is a fine anthology of thirty pieces for Christmastide…Wallace’s arrangements of Greensleeves, Silent Night and Oh Holy Night are very good indeed…For anyone looking for a wide range of familiar and lesser known music for December, this anthology fits the bill nicely.”
– David Norton, Soundboard Volume XXXV, No. 3, 2009
A Season of Light is a collection of standards and works that were beloved songs from my days of making music with lutes, viols and voices with Trio LiveOak and the Quadrivium in Boston. It is a joyous coming together of my past and present. Four original works are included. The PDF sampler above is a selection of six pieces, please enjoy and share it freely with others.

“I got to read a lot of these today and they are really terrific. I don’t normally think of artistic content and commercial success at the same time but I think that this collection should be very successful. I have most of the commercially available collections of Christmas music for CG and yours is really the best for a number of reasons and I think most players would agree. Everything lies beautifully on the instrument and the modal harmonies and counterpoint (reminiscent of many pieces from Francesco DaMilano to Sylvius Weiss)! It’s a great work and I wish you the best.” –Louis Arnold, guitarist
