"Wonderful! Thoroughly enjoyed it. A great Christmas gift that I’ll put on for the whole family at Christmas dinner. "
For The Faithful at Christmas is a eighteen-track album by Dave Cornwall. This CD contains a classic emblem of instrumental piano Christmas music such as “Joy To The World,” “Oh Holy Night,” “What Child is This,” and more. You’ll find yourself sitting back and listening to the inspiring tracks in your home, in your car, or playing the CD in the background during your different Christmas events. I found myself feeling so relaxed and at peace as I listened to how skillfully Cornwall played the piano showcasing his unique arrangement and style of the Christmas songs...

The "Regular" Folks?
Here's What They've Had To Say - So Far!
"We popped the CD in and immediately fell in love with this light jazz-inspired (not to mention) powerful collection of classic Christmas songs."
"This is the best thing for Christmas since the Charlie Brown Christmas Special!
"Oscar Peterson recorded a bit of great music that he called, "Exclusively For My Friends." These recordings seemed both personal, and unique. My album is very much like that based on what I've been told from those who have heard it. Truly, some of the messages on my answering machine have just been amazing. This album seems to have meaning for people in deep ways that are hard for me to put into words. Quite honestly, I didn't expect these types of effusive reactions."
"Friends had for a long time asked me to share my arrangements with them and this was a great way to do so. Similarly, I felt like I wanted to give something tangible to families celebrating Christmas, starting with my own three kids. With the seemingly growing turmoil and terror in the world, the time to do this seemed to be now. Including my very own rendition of Let There Be Peace on Earth seemed like a natural fit for a CD to play this Christmas."
"As to why another Christmas album, well, some families, like mine, have just a very few truly special Christmas recordings that are really "must haves" for one or more parts of our own "tradition." For many, however, solo piano and jazz piano have both endearing and emotional qualities that rise gently above the music in the mall, the radio in the car, and everything else that Linus might say is "just too commercial."
"My hope is that For the Faithful - At Christmas will add to people's true enjoyment and appreciation of Christmas, in the ways that are certainly enjoyable and maybe even unexpectedly meaningful. For those who want to appreciate a less commercial and maybe more quiet aspect of celebrating Christmas, I hope that For the Faithful - At Christmas will find a truly special place in their hearts, and on their shelves, next to A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Santa Clause, or It's a Wonderful Life...true greats from three separate generations, yet also for each generation and most probably, generations to come. "
"It's no less than amazing what music can do for the soul.
It is amazing what jazz piano can do for Christmas past, present, and future!"
Reviews and Commentaries
Here's What "The Pros" are Saying!
About the Album
For the Faithful - At Christmas is a jazz-inspired and powerful solo piano collection of 18 timeless songs for people who want to experience in a new way the peace and power of what Christmas has been, and what Christmas can be. Jazz exists to communicate moods, feelings, and contexts....as really nothing else can. For the Faithful - At Christmas is a unique and distinctive jazz recording by Dave Cornwall that has surprised people...by unlocking feelings and memories, and in doing so, bringing people closer to some quite welcomed and "unexpected" positive, emotional "finds. " And, closer to each other.
What does the album sound like? Who was it influenced by? All good questions. The short answers are that some find it reminiscent of Vince Guaraidi, the pianist and composer of much of the Charlie Brown Christmas special sound track. Some hear a Dave Brubeck influence. Yet others hear some George Winston. The truth of the matter is that For the Faithful - At Christmas is something unique. Just page down for some extended sound clips, if you're curious!
For those that would ask, so why a Christmas album? Aren't there enough Christmas recordings?! When asked about this, Dave smiles, and leans in. In his own words, he says -
"Thanks Dave - I feel it getting colder already! Thanks Again"
