It’s getting to be that time of the year. I am slow to learn things, so I need to start on my Christmas music early. Anyone have any particular Christmas songs they are working up for this holiday season? I just started working on a Mike Marshall arrangement of “Angels we have heard on high.”
I am also going to hit Ben’s “Joy to the world.” I did it a bit last year. I have a little group that did some Christmas songs last year, and I think it would work well there.
There is a talented young violinist that attends my church, and we did a couple songs last year (I don’t remember what we did… getting old is brutal). I am thinking about making a little arrangement of “What child is this?” to do with her. I had a Mark Hanson arrangement years ago that was pretty good. I might dig that up again and see if it is as good as I remember.
Anyone else get pumped up for Christmas music?
