Exquisite! A set of variations like no other. Helman has done it again, giving organists a truly fantastic set of variations on a favorite Christmas tune. Each variation includes the text, offering an idea of the musical image portrayed. These are not for the average organist and will make a spectacular addition to any recital or worship service. This deserves a serious look by serious organists. The set opens with a flowing pastorale and then a trio followed by a brilliant trumpet tune. Next is a beautiful meditation in mixed meter with the melody in the pedal, and the set closes with a splashy toccata. EDITOR'S TOP PICK.

    I bought this set of variations to prepare for next year's Christmas music and am delighted with it. The arranging is fresh, innovative, and accessible. I'm looking forward to more of Mr. Helman's work.
