Description:
Perhaps better known for its role in music such as Tango, French Musette, Polka, Cajun and Sydeco, the accordion has also filled an important role in religious and celebratory music. From its patenting by Cyrill Demian on 23rd May, 1829, in Vienna, the accordion has filled many roles and been subject to more praise and abuse than any other instrument.

Having the ability to emulate the sounds of virtually every musical instrument meant it was seen as a new challenger on the front. It was condemned by the Nazis and banned from playing classical music as it was seen as "an abuse of our great masters". It was suggested by some to be a tool of the devil. It was played in hotels, dance halls, and even houses of poor repute. It was also used by missionaries in the fields, as it was able to emulate every portable instrument, did not need constant tuning, and in the hands of a master could perform virtually every hymn written for Organ.

Perhaps there is no better demonstration of its versatility than on this recording of beautiful Christmas Carols. The instrument used for this recording is a midi/acoustic Pigini accordion, manufactured in Castlefidado, Italy. With this instrument Bernadette, has been able to capture all the fun, joy and celebration, which will give the listener years of wonderful listening. Perhaps best known for her busking for many years at Christmas near the Myer windows in Melbourne's famous Bourke Street Mall, Bernadette (and her accordion) is well known to virtually everyone in the city of Melbourne.
