    This is a wonderful format – on most pieces the piano can play the Christmas carols alone or add the optional instrument descants. The pieces are in Jazz style with some more effective than others. The ones I would actually use from this book are: “It came upon a Midnight Clear...

    � with flute and bass and “Away in a Manger� with flute. These are both in a smooth jazz style. Others use 2 “C� instruments, hand-chimes, violin, Bb clarinet, oboe, recorder, and cello and are in various styles with varying degrees of effectiveness. Some such as the “Ave Maria� have only the piano accompaniment for the piano part and cannot stand alone from the instrumental which has the melody. Again this is a great idea for church musicians using limited resources. I hope they publish more books such as this using general hymns
