christmas fantasia
the music of andrew wainwright

"It makes such a refreshing change to hear fresh treatments of some familiar Christmas favourites as well as some less well-known items... This is an attractive, well-planned and produced release, which will be part of my seasonal listening for sure." 

Paul Hindmarsh, British Bandsman magazine 

"Devising the programme of music for a CD can be a tough job... Using his own arrangements and writing, Andrew Wainwright, has however, succeeded in the task, bringing a different feel to Christmas by ignoring much of the very traditional and often commercial fare that is everywhere and overcooked." 

Tim Mutum, British Bandsman magazine 

"The CD contains many fine arrangements along with a variety of style and moods... No doubt a number of the items will be played by bands on their Christmas programmes in the future. In addition to his music Andrew Wainwright is responsible for the comprehensive sleeve notes and the album's design." 

National Association of Brass Band Conductors 

"This new recording provides not only an excellent programme of Christmas music, but also offers a fine showcase for Andrew Wainwright's ability as an arranger. His music is gaining popularity with secular and Salvation Army bands. This CD is an excellent Christmas listen and I highly recommend it." 

Kevin Ashman, Salvationist magazine
