O Holy Night -Advanced Piano

This timeless classic Christmas song has been beautifully arranged for advanced level Pianists, with atmospheric pianistic writing , it grows and develops into a majestic solo utilising much of the Piano keyboard.

We wish you a Merry Christmas

This is really fun arrangement of this Festive favourite. Beginning in a very simple position, this arrangement  works its way through various styles and increases in difficulty as it progresses. Great fun to learn and play, but by the end it is advanced level!

Description

“Countdown to Christmas”

Warmly recommended…includes some nicely pianistic writing…the overall feel of the arrangements is fresh and contemporary. In short, a great choice for those wanting easy (and sometimes impressively inventive) arrangements of their favourite carols.
