From April 7th to April 10th, 2016 took place the Music Trade Fair 2016 of the Messe Frankfurt. This year, the Music Trade Fair 2016 of the Messe Frankfurt stretched itself from Hall 8 to 11. A setback in comparison with the previous years, it seems.
I visited the Music Trade Fair 2016 of the Messe Frankfurt, on Saturday, April 9th, 2016. What a sadness, what a quietness, … Not that much crowded in visitors, and some disappointed visitors because of the low attendance rate of the visitors for the Music Trade Fair 2016 of the Messe Frankfurt.
Among the exhibitors, the St. Petersburg Musical Wind Instruments Factory from Russia, and the Manifatture Fuselli from Recanati in Italy, a manufacturer of bags and straps to music instruments.
And speaking of music, an exquisite Christmas album has just fallen from the sky into my open arms. One of these hidden gems and wonders, unknown to the « main stream », and to the public. An exquisite Christmas album that is « out of the box » from the American singer Ken Norris, an album entitled : …in the Spirit of Christmas : musical landscape for choir and small ensemble.
In this exquisite Christmas album of great beauty, from the American singer Ken Norris, the Christmas classics : I Saw Three Ships, O Holy Night, Silent Night…, are to be found, but also gems from the master himself : « Perfect Inheritance (Shout to the Fields) » and « Perfect Inheritance II (Amen) ».
The exquisite « …in the Spirit of Christmas », from the American singer Ken Norris, succeeds because those Christmas songs are arranged with a timeless soul music flair that is for all seasons.
« …in the Spirit of Christmas », from the American singer Ken Norris, a first rate album, hidden from the mass media and the public, a gem that you have to add to your record shelves.
According to the Messe Frankfurt, there were 2 043 exhibitors from 60 countries, for the trade shows Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound 2016.
