Here, Rick Robertson has woven two familiar tunes for this carol with the music of Johannes Brahms. The piece quotes one well-known Intermezzo (op. 118 no. 2) and hints at another (op. 117 no. 1). This arrangement for late intermediates 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.
What Child Is This
