Vienna Teng’s shimmering winter visions the perfect soundtrack for a holiday at fire’s side

For my readers as Christmas nears and the year comes to a close, I hope you’re all keeping warm and finding ways to relax and enjoy the spirit of the season. These songs have served me well for years, as pianist/composer Vienna Teng built her reputation in my eyes as this generation’s strongest, yet least heralded talent. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I have.

THE LAST SNOWFALL
from Inland Territory

If this were the last snowfall
No more halos on evergreens
If this were my last glimpse of winter
What would these eyes see?

THE ATHEIST CHRISTMAS CAROL
from Warm Strangers (2004)

It’s the season of grace coming out of the void
A man is saved by a voice in the distance
It’s the season of possible miracle cluresWhere hope is currency and death is not the last unknown
Don’t forget … Don’t forget I love, I love, I love you

GREEN ISLAND SERENADE
from Warm Strangers (2004)

LULLABYE FOR A STORMY NIGHT
from
Waking

Someday you’ll know
That nature is so
The same rain that draws you near me
Falls on rivers and land
Forests and sand
Makes the beautiful world that you see
In the morning
