    “In Dulci Jubilo” was the result of a great guitarist falling in love with a great guitar. When Eva Beneke first played a 1952 Hauser that was here at GSI, she told us it would be a dream to record a CD on it. Thanks to the generosity of the new owner who about this time had just purchased it, we were able to borrow the guitar back long enough to record this very album. Eva decided it would be fitting to do an all-Christmas music album and assembled a fantastic group of musicians including Grammy-winner Scott Tennant and arranger Mark Small (who arranged for LAGQ’s Grammy-winning Guitar Heroes). GSI produced and recorded the CD.

    The CD features guitar solos, guitar duos and several chamber pieces arranged for guitar, cello, violin and oboe/English horn. In addition to traditional German and English Christmas songs the CD includes holiday music by Bach, Haendel, Holst, Schubert and more.
