The First Noel
This beloved traditional carol is given a lush harmonic treatment by Rick Robertson, with little “counter-phrases” that dart in and out. This arrangement is very well-suited for use in a church Christmas program, as a prelude or offertory and is part of the Christmas Memories songbook.
A Mostly Minor Christmas
A Mostly Minor Christmas, is a quirky late intermediate collection by Stacy Fahrion that contains some familiar carols arranged in unfamiliar ways, such as Deck the Halls, in 7/8, and Mambo All the Way, a minor-key mambo version of Jingle Bells. There are a couple of jazzy tunes with silly lyrics, including Gloomy Old St. Nick, and O Spider Tree. Finally, there are several soaring lyrical carols in mostly minor keys. The only piece in this collection that’s in a major key is a subtly reharmonized version of Silent Night.
