Christmas Music 2015

Next on this year’s list of staff picks for Christmas, our Music deparment manager Katherine has chosen to tell you some of her favorite Christmas music books and products.

The Christmas Family Songbook

Most of you will probably remember the Readers Digest Merry Christmas Songbook.  When it went out of print, there was so much outrage, that Alfred Publishing decided to do something about it.

This songbook is a beautiful, hardcover, keepsake that will encourage your family to enjoy some fun Christmas sing-alongs this season!  Filled with over 100 of your favorite Christmas songs, these carols are all easy to play, and it comes with accompaniment CD as well as digital lyric sheets that you can print and share.  $34.99.

Holidays Extraordinaire!

Following the highly successful publication, Strings Extraordinaire!, this new collection offers 25 arrangements for Christmas, Chanukah, and wintertime. Like its predecessor, Holidays Extraordinaire! is a progressive collection designed for students of different playing levels.

All pieces are scored with an advanced and beginning part for each instrument, while being progressively ordered throughout. Two selections feature a special advanced solo obbligato part. Holidays Extraordinaire! is perfect for those festive December concerts when orchestras of varied levels perform together.

A Songbook for LDS Families by Janice Kapp Perry

A Songbook for LDS Families highlights eighteen beloved and well-known songs, as well as twenty-eight newly penned Book of Mormon hymns composed by Janice Kapp Perry with text by Bonnie Hart Murray. The first section of this beautifully designed book showcases musical scores everyone loves, as well as new sister missionary arrangements of As Sisters in Zion and In the Hollow of Thy Hand. Incredible insights into the stories behind the cherished lyrics accompany each song.

In addition to the choral arrangements, section two explains the process and highlights the scriptures that inspired the creation of these new Book of Mormon hymns. Also included in this special-edition volume are two CDs containing accompaniment tracks to all forty-six pieces of music. Underscored by the stunning artwork of Greg Olsen, Simon Dewey, and Tom Lovell, as well as the complete Book of Mormon art collection by Arnold Friberg, this unparalleled celebration of faith-promoting music is sure to be a treasured keepsake.

Pardon our dust!

Our music department is working on getting a face lift, so over the next couple of weeks we will be making a lot of changes to where music books, sheet music, and even our pianos and keyboard will be located.

Don’t worry, our employees will still know how to help you find just what you’re looking for, and will be more than happy to guide you through our metamorphosing department!
