Christmastime is often a blur of activity that includes a few moments to reflect on the coming of Christ. In this beautiful collection, Mark Hayes provides us with eight meditative arrangements designed to help us slow down and experience the thrill of anticipation that lies at the heart of Advent. Suitable for preludes, offertories, or even to underscore a candle-lighting ceremony, these hymns and carols will set the mood for prayer and contemplation. A companion listening CD contains the recordings of Mark's original studio improvisations that were the basis for these printed arrangements.

  • April 29, 2019 Great Advent resource

    This book will provide church musicians with much-needed options during Advent. Many resources claim to offer appropriate selections that are actually Christmas music. Musicians in churches that follow the liturgical calendar know that there is a difference, so I'm grateful to now be able to enlarge my Advent...

    repertoire. The arrangements sound more difficult than they actually are, and they don't require hours of preparation.

  • December 02, 2018 Gorgeous Arrangements

    Mark Hayes definitely has the arranger's touch for piano music. These pieces are so rich in sound, and so playable. Can't wait to play the book at our Christmas Eve midnight service; my old boss Gregg Smith would give it an A+.

  • November 11, 2018 Sublime!

    These meditative arrangements are sublimely beautiful. As a pianist for a Catholic parish, these are ideal pre-service meditations. I have received many compliments on these from parishioners, and of course the credit goes the Mark Hayes.

  • August 05, 2017 Advent, by Mark Hayes

    [...] But I am very familiar with the work of Mark Hayes, and know that it is always amazing; so I took a chance. The book arrived today, August 5th, I sightread through the entire book, and now am so excited about the up-coming Advent season. I almost wish it...

    was November as I can't wait to share these pieces with my congregation. Do not be intimidated by the recording of "Let All Mortal Flesh Be Silent" as it sounds much harder to play than it actually is. This book will supply my communion meditation needs for all of Advent, providing gorgeous background music for silent prayer and reflection. Thank you, Mark Hayes, for recharging my passion for these time-honored hymns and carols. This book is a treasure.......buy it!
