Flowing effortlessly between sparse & minimal and full & present, Joseph Nimoh's take on this familiar song is not as much a single arrangement as it is a masterful display of the many different ways you can interpret a simple melody.
Allan Koetz's instrumental interpretation of the traditional hymn, "Good Christian Men, Rejoice" is at once contemplative and exciting. Best tackled by a moderately experienced pianist, this is a perfect piece for an offertory or interlude.
As energetic as it is playful, Christi Still's take on the "Ode to Joy" melody from Beethoven's 9th symphony certainly lives up to that original title. A little faster than most arrangements of the piece, this is best suited to pianists of a moderate skill level.
Seamlessly weaving two hymns of surrender with a distinctly modern touch, this moderately challenging piano arrangement calls for sensitive rubato throughout. Well-suited for time of reflection and prayer.
Arranged for piano, two violins and viola, this thoughtful rendition of the classic carol is styled in an Americana feel with jazz harmony inflections throughout. A memorable instrumental feature for the Christmas season.
Arranged for piano, flute and clarinet, this instrumental trio develops with classical precision offset by contemporary syncopation. Well-suited for an offertory or prelude. [Note: may be performed with any combination of C (flute, violin, etc.) and Bb instruments (clarinet, trumpet, etc.)]
