This All is Calm All is Bright 2017 Bundle includes two advancing holiday piano arrangements:
The Holly and the Ivy This arrangements begins with an antiphonal section whose simplicity speaks volumes. This unfolds into a beautiful E flat setting with gorgeous harmonies. The keys change in a unique way to reveal a big, full-sounding minor setting of the tune. The arrangement ends with a simple, yet exquisite sound.
O Come, O Come Emmanuel This arrangement begins in a big and broad way using a sostenuto pedal or just a damper pedal that does not clear, producing a large, tangled, but beautiful sound. This clear immediately then and presents the beautiful O Come O Come Emmanuel melody in a simple way, yet overimposed in an unexpected meter. The remaining parts of the arrangement range from big, melancholy parts to exquisite simple parts. Most listeners and pianists who play this piece comment on how fresh and unique the harmonies are that give this tune a new and fresh feel.
