If you're unsure what musical glasses are, they are a musical instrument of the 18th century consisting of a set of glass bowls. It is played by running moistened or chalked fingers around the rim of the glasses. Each glass is tuned to a different pitch by filling the glass with water until the desired pitch is achieved.

The tone of the musical glasses is quite unique and the instrument itself is very difficult to control with quality of the tone changing with the amount of water on the fingers and the amount of pressure used. The resulting performances are always different but beautiful.

This is a collection of Christmas pieces performed on Musical Glasses, accompanied by piano and strings recorded with his son, Brian Gary. We hope this musical collection blesses your Christmas Season.
