Arranged for early advanced piano, Medleys for Blended Worship: Christmas features ten contemporary arrangements of classic praise songs and Christmas carols, by Carol Tornquist.
Traditional carols are often performed alongside contemporary Christmas songs in many of today's church services, giving rise to the term blended worship. This distinctive collection provides a valuable resource for pianists who want to play familiar holiday tunes in a tasteful and new style in addition to current Christmas songs of praise recognizable to most congregations. To assist in planning, performance times and optional segues are included.
