This, my second Christmas CD, might as well have been titled “By Request”.

Through the years, since I started with the Christmas concerts in Braendkjaer Church in Kolding in 1993 – a tradition that has now grown into a country wide tour, this year comprising 28 concerts in three weeks – I have often been asked by my loyal concertgoers, usually in connection with the by now also very traditional autograph signing following the concerts: “When will this or that song be released on CD?”

So, here they are! Well, most of them at least. The whole idea behind the release of ”When You Wish upon a Star” (Når du ser et stjerneskud) was to choose the best of the songs we have done over the years, but never recorded. I am also very pleased with the fact that the nucleus of the musicians and choir singers participating on this CD, are actually the same people who have been on the Christmas tours with me for many, many years.

In my own opinion “When You Wish upon a Star” and “Christmas Candles” (Julelys) from 1998 supplement each other really well. Where “Christmas Candles” had a string of solemn Christmas songs and –hymns, “When You Wish upon a Star” pays homage to the rhythmic, contemporary, American inspired genre. As a small curiosity I decided to include “O Holy Night” on this new Christmas CD. This song was also released on the first CD, but in Danish and in a more classical version. On “When You Wish upon a Star” this number has been allowed to blossom in the best American Gospel style.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
