Carols For Organists

Books | Organ

Catalogue No: 1400255
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
In Carols for Organists , Colin Mawby has taken 20 of the most widely used carols and worked his magic on them. These are not just last-verse treatments, but complete mini recompositions for each tune.

There is an Introduction (the sort that always sounds impressive but which contains enough of the hymn tune to act as an encouragement to the congregation), the standard harmonisation, a short Interlude before the last verse, and a last-verse arrangement of great beauty and originality followed by a fitting few bars of conclusion.

Colin Mawby's approach to this well-loved music is unique: he brings new life to the carol tradition.

      A great collection. Twenty of the best carols each with a superb introduction a typical harmonisation of the carol and a really spectacular arrangment of the last verse with a stirring conclusion. They are all written for manual and pedals, though the music is presented on two staves but nevertheless the pedal part is clear. The music includes some complex chords but with a little practise you can produce a really great sound fit for the Christmas season. At about two thirds of A4 size this a fantastic small book.
