Media Type : BookLevel : BeginningMusical Genre : ChristmasNumber of pages : 32 A collection of the world's most famous carols arranged for piano students. Most are fairly easy and modern, with popular harmonic settings to appeal to young students and audiences alike. Harmonic textures vary from one piece with a single-line countermelody in the left hand to simple block, arpeggiated, or waltz-style chord accompaniments. A few pieces use slightly more elaborate 'boogie' accompaniments with grace notes or jazz-inspired harmonies. Melody lines occasionally move into the left hand for added interest. All of the carols include lyrics. One song, Santa and Me, is written with a separate vocal line and piano part.
A fantastic collection of 17 traditional carols - accompanied by a superb piano, bass, and drum trio - with a tasteful jazz flair. A refreshing approach to familiar, sentimental melodies and fun to play.Titles :Auld Lang SyneAway In A MangerDeck The HallsGreensleeves (What Child Is This?)God Rest Ye Merry GentlemenGo Tell It On The MountainHark The Herald Angels SingIt Came Upon A Midnight ClearJingle BellsJoy To The WorldO Come All Ye FaithfulO Little Town Of BethlehemSilent NightThe First NoelUp On The HousetopWe Three KingsWe Wish You A Merry Christmas
