"No matter how many Christmas arrangements one has, it is always fun to get a new book and discover fresh ideas for classic carols." Jeff Bennett says that has been his goal wi th this collection. There's a subtle jazz feel to the Manger Songs that incorporates both "Away in a Manger" melodies at the same time, in a minor key! Telling the story of Jesus' birth through music will never get old. It is a story we must continue to tell...even from the piano bench.
Songs of moderate difficulty arranged by Jeff Bennett: Gentle Mary Laid Her Child * How Great Our Joy! * It Came upon the Midnight Clear * Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence * Manger Songs * O Come, All Ye Faithful * O Holy Night * O Little Town of Bethlehem * On Christma Night All Christians Sing * Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow
