Away in a Manger
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.
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.
