An interesting and unusual take on a lesser known Christmas piece.

‘I have played many music selections in my time featuring Christmas music, but the funny thing is they all seem to use the same tunes! Jingle Bells, Rudolph…. but I didn’t want to produce another of those!
An interesting thought – all Christmas selections seem to be in 4 beats in a bar and Major keys, all bright and festive. Why not try something different?
Carol Fantasy uses 3 beats in a bar, and is written in a Minor key!
Some of the classics are there, We Three Kings, Coventry Carol, and We Wish you a Merry Christmas, but they are all stitched together using the lesser known Bell Carol.  This could well be the only Christmas selection with a Jazz waltz feel!


Enjoy a different, refreshing and enjoyable slant on Christmas music!
