Traditional Carols in the Minimalist Style
Traditional/arr. Michael Bomier
- Gateway Editions
24 of the best known and loved carols, both sacred and secular, arranged in one and two-page versions, with accompaniments using post-modern minimalism. The melodies are single notes or fixed intervals in the right hand, and the left hand accompaniment uses a variety of chordal and argeggiated figures that repeat, phase, and otherwise contrast with the melody. These easy-to-play and read settings give new life to these most familiar of songs, yet keep the identity of each theme strong and prominent. Easy to medium levels, something for every level, and for every kind of Christmas gathering.
