Article Editor: Beverly West
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Dec. 17, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Eugene Dong, an independent music producer (www.echoesofheaven.com), today announced that Keith Thompson's Christmas pipe organ classic, "A King's Christmas" is now available nationally and internationally through Apple iTunes(tm). In addition to the iTunes store in the USA, Thompson's albums are now available in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Finland, Portugal, France, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom.
"I'm very pleased about Apple's decision to make Mr. Thompson's music available to their shoppers," said Eugene Dong. "Not only does this decision invites serious music lovers to join the digital music age with Keith's pipe organ albums, but clearly demonstrates that Apple iTunes(tm)+iPod(tm) usage is not limited to pop music lovers."
In his first digital release, "A King's Christmas," Keith Thompson celebrates the birthday of the King of Kings on the king of instruments, the pipe organ. Selections include the classic Christmas music of Johann Sebastian Bach, as well two 20th century works, "In Dulci Jubilo," by Marcel Dupre, and "Carillon-Sortie," by Henri Mulet. Carillon-Sortie is a vivacious work that is an encore favorite regardless of the season.
In addition, Mr. Thompson adds his own richly textured arrangements of timeless Christmas classics "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel," "Go Tell It on the Mountain," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Away in the Manger," "Joy to the World," "The First Noel," "Now is Born the Divine Christ Child" and "Silent Night."
An early review of the CD calls Mr. Thompson's album "inspiring, relaxing, invigorating, and awesome!"
