Mark Hayes: Carols for the Intermediate Pianist

Seasonal Settings that Warm the Heart

By Mark Hayes

https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/mark-hayes-carols-for-the-intermediate-pianist-sheet-music/17249365

Piano - Intermediate
Seasonal Settings that Warm the Heart. Composed by Mark Hayes (1953-). Sacred, Advent, Christmas. Lorenz Publishing Company #70/1621L. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.70-1621L).

Item Number: LO.70-1621L

Hayes has written creative, fresh settings of familiar carols that sound hard but are easily played by intermediate and advanced players alike. Special attention is given to smaller-handed pianists...no excessive use of octaves, no large leaps or chords, and thinner but satisfying harmonic textures. However, the trademark Hayes harmonies, modulations and embellishments are still there. Each arrangement is three minutes or shorter, making them perfect for use in services where timing is a consideration.

    Mark Hayes consistently puts heart and soul into his arrangements and this book is a great example. Playable, full sounding, delicate where intended. This is truly working for preludes and fill ins. You won't be disappointed. I say int/adv because many int. compositions by other arrangers are pretty...

    simple.

    Wonderful Christmas songs not of the common kid. Beautiful arrangements. Takes a little work but well worth it.
