This collection of guitar ensemble music was originally created for the Piedmont Guitar Orchestra (PGO), a community-oriented ensemble in North Carolina. To unite the diversity of playing levels within the orchestra, each composition has been arranged with parts organized into five graded levels: Guitar I is the most advanced; Guitar III is the easiest part; Guitar V, with (6) tuned down to low D, and Guitar II and IV are intermediate level parts. These works, though easily realized with one player per part, will sound more effective with several players per part. Away in a Manger, Deck the Halls, Joy to the World, Little Strummer Boy. Overall Difficulty:  Beginning-Intermediate. 64 Pages.

The music selected for this book seems to lift you gently back to by-gone days to an era more leisurely paced than our own. This collection for solo classic guitar focuses first and foremost on early Christmas music and is enhanced by appropriate cover art, biblical text and poetry dating from this exciting period. The selections are festive to listen to while providing arrangements ranging from the traditional "easier to learn" lute solos to more advanced settings with today's harmonies. Each piece is cloaked in the special beauty and warmth that is characteristic of the guitar. A "mix and match" approach in the arrangements provides an added dimension for your enjoyment. For example, What Child is This/Greensleeves begins with an olden lute version followed by interludes that segue into other sections. Seven of the eight pieces in the book are recorded on the accompanying CD for your listening pleasure and to guide you in interpreting the pieces. Written in standard notation only. Overall Difficulty: Intermediate. 32 Pages.

Check Out Now
This collection of carols arranged for guitar solo brings together twenty-four melodies that have had broad appeal through the ages. They were a spontaneous expression of musical joy that occurred over much of northern Europe in the fifteenth century, coinciding with the dawning of the modern age and the ending of the long medieval night. The selections include universal favorites, some tunes which are popular in their native lands and reasonably well-known elsewhere, and others which are unfamiliar even in their homelands. Some familiar texts, including "Away in a Manger" and "Angels from the Realms of Glory," have been set to different tunes. Notes on the origin of each tune are included. Written in notation and tablature. The companion CD features performances of all of the tunes, with some grouped into medleys. Overall Difficulty: Intermediate. 56 Pages.
