Official Review for Ancient Winter by LEAH:
Atmospheric, Evocative and Inspirational.
Be prepared to traverse through the ages.
Warning: You will find no modern takes on pop contemporary Christmas music here.
Warning #2: I will tell you now, my family is going to hate being in the car while I drive. This album is on repeat and we’re only in mid-November!
Warning #3: I am no official music reviewer for a magazine, but I sang in a choir for 15 years and have played: keyboards, clarinet, tenor sax and in the process of self-teaching myself the harp. I’ve done a bit of song writing and composition, but those days are long gone (for now). The only writing I’m doing these days is romance novel writing.
