Classical Masterworks with Christmas Carols
Arranged by Ruth Elaine Schram
|Listen to a Noel Masterworks sample|
Classical Masterworks with Christmas Carols arranged by Ruth Elaine Schram, beautifully orchestrated by John Purifoy. This artful blending of classical masterworks with beloved carols creates a unique collection you will use time and again. The five arrangements contained in this collection are useful throughout the Advent and Christmas season.
You may use the selections individually or present them together with the optional narration included in the book for a rich 25-30 minute cantata. Because the pieces are based on well-known classical works, the introductions tend to be longer than usual, allowing time to add your own dramatic presentation if you desire.
