A Mary Merry Christmas. (88 Keys to Celebrate the Season). By Mary Mcdonald. For piano. Sacred, Christmas. Moderately difficult. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.70-1689L).
Level 3 - Mary McDonald has turned her creative attention to some of our favorite Christmas music in this whimsically titled collection. It contains bright prelude and postlude ideas as well as mellow, haunting carol settings for quieter moments during the season. Mary's beautiful blending of Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" with the English carol "What Child is This?" and her bluesy treatment of "Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow" are sure to become favorites for pianists and listeners alike.

A Mary Merry Christmas
I have to play for church and Christmas parties during the season and this has arrangements that will work for multiple occasions. I especially like "Lo How a Rose." Very nice! Highly recommend.
