Description

This incredibly popular piano solo arrangement is a best selling piano solo Christmas Carol from the Advanced collection. It contains some of the technique-intensive ornaments for which Jarrod Radnich is best known and tempers them with slower, yet equally moving and pleasing, measures.

This arrangement is an excellent choice for a worship performance or a Winter recital, in addition to a wonderful piece to play for family and friends.

This English Christmas carolís original author is unknown and the carol first appeared with lyrics in 1833 in a collection of seasonal carols assembled by William B. Sandys. It recounts the visits of the shepherds to the Christ child as told in Luke 2:8-20 and is one of the most frequently arranged carols. This new arrangement hints at the original carolís somewhat dark Aeolian mode (natural minor scale), but it brings refreshing re-harmonization by switching between the Aeolian and the Modern Dorian modes. The piece leaves the listener with a haunting feeling of completion as the final chord rests not on the tonic of the new key (F#), but on the bVI (flat VI). This D major chord serves as the pivot chord between the two keys, F# minor and G (harmonic) minor and would be the final chord of a half-cadence in the original key.
