"What fun! Layne brothers Josh (harp) and Robin (percussion) make beautiful music together on Christmas Time: Harp and Marimba."

Full review at ChristmasReviews is here:

"With unusual timbres ringing out from harp and percussion, Layne brothers Josh and Robin bring new sparkle to old carols in their delightful CD, Christmas Time.  Both musicians seem to be having a jolly good time!" - Sylvia Rickard, Canadian Composer 

Christmas Time - Harp and Marimba is the inaugural recording by the unique duo of Josh and Robin Layne.

Performing on the pedal harp and marimba, the brothers create a rich and enveloping sound that is perfect for the holiday season.  With over 50 minutes of familiar Christmas favourites, this album is sure to become a family tradition.

From the CD liner notes:

"Christmas music is special to both of us.  This collection features some of our favourite Christmas songs.  On it are carols for solo harp - Carlos Salzedo's marvelous arrangements, including two of his Concert Variations (O Tannenbaum and O Come All Ye Faithful); a carol for marimba and drums (Robin arranged and played both parts!); and most especially, carols for harp and marimba.  The harp and marimba are both unusual instruments.  Together, they create a wonderful sound. 

As you can imagine, there aren't any Christmas carols arranged for harp and marimba..."
