CHRISTMAS DAY IN THE MORNING!
A Holiday Collection for Piano—Four Hands
Gilbert M. Martin
A joy-filled and musically colorful compendium of Christmas melodies, brilliantly arranged for four happy hands on one yuletide piano! Eleven carols, masterfully entwined in six separate selections, including a glorious Asleep on the Hay, utilizing both familiar melodies of Away in a Manger, the seldom heard WEXFORD CAROL and the IRISH CAROL wedded together, and a delicately ravishing arrangement of Silent Night. And finally, for sheer sparkle and joy, cheery adaptations of IN DULCI JUBILO with JOY TO THE WORLD, GOD REST YE MERRY, GENTLEMEN with DECK THE HALL, and I SAW THREE SHIPS with WASSAIL SONG, round out this happy, energetic and Christmas tree-bright volume.
