This is a highly unique arrangement by Rebecca Faith. Its features are laid back jazzy chords and syncopated rhythms within a 6/8 structure. There is frequent use of clashing seconds in the harmony, but the familiar melody is prominent and not lost. This piece has five clear sections: a verse of the melody, a piano solo, another verse of the melody, a flute solo, then a final rendition of the melody - but here the flute continues to maintain an experimental feel, combining the verse and solo sections to conclude. All of Rebecca's Christmas Carol arrangements are fresh, exciting and uniquely crafted, and are very much for the concert platform rather than a sing-along or play-along at home with Dad playing the piano part. These beautiful arrangements require work on the part of both flautist and pianist, as with a demanding accompaniment they are very much a duo. The majority are for the advanced flautist, minimum grade 6-7 standard, as there are some complicated rhythms, flutter tonguing and technically challenging jazzy-style passages. Highly recommended and well received by audiences there is nothing else available like them, and so these challenging yet thoroughly enjoyable arrangements fill a gap in the market and are an effective and welcome addition to the repertoire, providing some festive music with a rather different flavour, away from the usual standard melody with accompaniment. The collection of 10 Christmas Carols was written for the flute and piano duo 'Tranquillo', who recorded them as their debut album 'Tranquillo Christmas' in 2010, a CD that has attracted some excellent reviews and can be purchased for £10 (plus P&P) from www.tranquilloduo.com

"This is a jazzed up version of the traditional carol, with jazz solos for both parts, giving both the pianist and flautist an opportunity to show off their skills! It is a lot of fun to perform and makes a great closing piece for any Christmas concert." - Sarah Waycott & Hannah Mitchell of Tranquillo Duo, November 2012

"This arrangement is marked 'laid back', and the first two verses of the carol are straight-forward and in 6/8 time. However the busy flute part in the second requires some concentration and fast finger work to carry off the written-out improvisatory passages for the intended effect. There are some lush harmonies in the piano, not for the average flute teacher to busk in a concert (speaking for myself!) but an accomplished pianist. Fairly straight-forward to get together with the piano but requiring effective use of dynamics and some careful ensemble work in the more jazzy section. This would be a great addition to a festive recital for the professional flautist, or perhaps an advanced grade 8 plus student looking for a challenging piece to include in their school Christmas concert." - Rachel Smith, November 2012
