Reimagined Christmas Tunes


New arrangements of old yuletide favorites to check out this season

In the blink of an eye, the holidays will be upon us, so now is the time to start preparations. There are several new publications of seasonal music worth considering.

If you’re a fan a Cindy Horstman’s arrangements, you may be familiar with her jazzy arrangement of “I Wonder as I Wander” for harp trio. She took this traditional carol and changed the beats per measure from six to four, added some jazz harmonies, and reinterpreted the piece in a contemporary format (reviewed in the September/October 2011 issue of Harp Column). She has now arranged it for solo harp so it isn’t just the trios having all the fun.
