Level 3 - Larry Shackley adds a third volume to his popular series of carols from around the world, turning his attention to Christmas songs from the British Isles. Favorites from the 19th and 20th centuries such as "See, Amid the Winter's Snow" and "In the Bleak Midwinter" rub shoulders with old folk melodies like the "Coventry Carol" and the "Wexford Carol." The medleys "Shepherds and Angels" and "Christmas Legends" combine several favorite carol melodies in bright, attractive settings. You'll find a variety of moods, lush harmonies, and even a few surprises such as a waltz version of "Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day" and a visit from Tchaikovsky in "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen." This new collection is ideal for preludes, special music, and holiday recitals.

Especially wonderful in the British Isles book is the medley Christmas Legends and the absolutely beautiful arrangement of In...

    The Bleak Midwinter. Certainly the best solo piano arrangement of that song I have played. Highly recommended series.

    I love to play during the holidays and this series of books is wonderful. The level is advanced but accessible with a little work. I play these pieces just to relax. Any music teacher should consider these for a more advanced student. These would be lovely in church as a...
