Herdman, Hills, Mangsen: At the Turning of the Year

At the Turning of the Year (2000)
Herdman, Hills, Mangsen
Hand & Heart Music 2000

IT’S BACK!! We’re pleased to be able to offer this classic Trio recording again … redesigned in a beautiful “eco-wallet” package that will fit perfectly with the rest of your collection complete with an easy to read spine. In 2000, Anne and the gals (that’s Priscilla Herdman & Cindy Mangsen, where ya been?!?) returned to the studio for a sampling of seasonal songs, old and new … this time drawing inspiration from celebrations from Halloween to the coming of the Spring. As with their live performances, the songs run the gamut from the sublimely beautiful to the gut-grabbing hilarious. It isn’t the holidays without these dulcet voices and exquisite harmonies. This one’s a keeper! Here’s a track list with a couple samples:
