Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Mary Chapin Carpenter (vocals, acoustic guitar); John Jennings (guitars, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, accordion, piano, drums, percussion); John Carroll, Jon Carroll (piano).
  • Audio Mixer: John Jennings.
  • Recording information: Red Hill, Charlottesville, VA.
  • Photographer: Mary Chapin Carpenter.
  • Many artists, when faced with the task of doing a Christmas album, merely knock out a selection of familiar pop tunes and perhaps a hymn or two and call it at that. Mary-Chapin Carpenter's COME DARKNESS, COME LIGHT: TWELVE SONGS OF CHRISTMAS is something entirely different: a largely self-written song cycle capturing several different aspects of the holiday season with grace, wit, and feeling. Carpenter, always a songwriter of emotional complexity and novelistic detail, invests these 12 songs with both delicacy and strength.
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.63) - "This is an intimate, reflective album....There is darkness and light here, but always joy behind the sadness, connection behind the separateness, hope on the other side of disconnection."
