    There are so many wonderful Christmas Carols for musicians to play. The problem for the instrumentalist lies with the fact that often the lyrics are a large part of the music. The melody is often lovely but fairly short and leaves us with having to either play a short piece or repeat the melody so often we are left with playing a short melody over and over. I thought about this and the solution for me is to write introductions and variations to the pieces. A singer wouldn’t sing the same lyrics every time through. That wouldn’t make sense. It does make sense to extend a piece with variations, keeping the feel of the piece but making it more interesting for both the player and the listener. Almost every piece in this collection has been expanded and I hope they will provide you with a great deal of pleasure. I think you will find these pieces to be playable and addictive.

    You will find the Christmas pieces in this book will work wonderfully as solos or with a friend as there are chords included for all the pieces. The CD has both a flute track and a separate track for a guitar accompaniment and you can use the balance control to minimize the volume for either instrument. The CD is designed so you can either listen to it, or use it as a play along CD.
