Thanks, S & W, Ron and Kenjazz for your nice comments. So glad you enjoyed my pieces.

Ron: LOL ...you had me in stitches and your comments brought back more memories of the song.

Kenjazz: I found the Chipmunk Song in a Dan Coates easy piano collection. Had to play it as I'm a big baby at heart, I love chipmunks and it brought back so many memories.

LadyPayne: Your I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS was so lovely. I could see myself sitting in a piano lounge on a cruise ship enjoying champagne watching and listening to you while the ship sailed on.

I "arranged" the same song last year but it's no where as good as yours. By arranging, I mean I took parts of a song I liked and put them together. It's not an original arrangement like yours and not with your flair for it, either :

I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

MR. SH: I really enjoyed your rendition of "We 3 Kings".. great arrangement & playing with a hypnotic rhythmic pulse. thumb Thanks for starting this great thread. It's snowing here in NY now, so finally have time to listen to all the wonderful holiday recordings here and am really enjoying them. smile


O HOLY NIGHT

Ha! The only ones I can play are Elssa`s and Candlelihgt Piano . . "Box" has fallen out wi me!

Elssa - O Holy Night - I`ve heard this a few times this year. A great song; you make nice job of it.


Candlelightpiano - Alvin and the chipmunks Remember well! Great playing here with much fluidity.

I`ll be home . . Atmospheric playing of what sounds like a difficult-in -places song. Bit of jazz creeping in here; Root it out, lass or it`ll get a hold on ya!

Been enjoying the terrific performances posted so far this holiday season.

Jazzwee - Christmas Time Is Here, great jazz there. Your rendition of Christmas Song was also nice.

Kenjazz - Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming, very good, had that melancholic feel.

Dannac - What Child Is This, well done, enjoyed it.

Strings & Wood - Little Drummer Boy, such a standard Christmas song, you played it very well.

Peterws - A Winter`s Tale and On Christmas Day, both very good, you play well and have good timings.

Rnaple - Alfred's Greensleeves, well done.

Elssa - Loved both covers, O Holy Night and Waltz Of Two Flowers. You always manage to add your own flavor to all songs you play.

Roger Ransom - O Holy Night, wonderful.

Mr Super-Hunky - We Three Kings (Hunky style.) Agree, that the rocky beat of the song is interesting.

Ladypayne - Liked your version of I'll Be Home For Christmas.

I know I'll regret this and later be embarrassed. I'm not going to get a better recording than my last practice due to a slight injury (sprain) so this Box wave is the best I can offer for this holiday thread and it's slow, bumpy and ugly but here it is warts and all blush Said I wouldn't post any crappy songs, I think with another week I could have this, that is if I could practice frown

https://app.box.com/s/u29hngdo9wz8cfx3orkt

I hate technology!!!! It just sits there, It's a big (26mg) file so maybe it just takes a while to load. I can't convert it to a mp3 cause all the free sites I used say I'm over my limit for conversion. mad LMK if you can't play it and I'll try something else.


Edited by Ragdoll (12/16/13 09:04 AM)
Edit Reason: It may be too big to load quickly

Loved it, Ragdoll!We still have snow on the ground here in Santa Fe, tho it's going the way of the dodo finally. I play a simplified version of this when I manage to do any holiday tunes at all. One of these days I'll have a repertoire of holiday tunes, instead of having to read them all, or just skipping them like I have this year. This was pretty cheerful smile

Yah, snow on the ground on top of ice is what caused my sprain. It's not too bad but hurts on my palm when stretching for octaves. Thanks for the kind words Cathy. smile

Thanks JimF, it will get better but the holiday season may be over before I can do it justice, that's why I posted what I had. It's a nice enough song to keep in rotation for Christmastime next year.
I guess I'll have to keep up my MOYD with one handed playing for awhile. ha

Jazzwee[/b]
Loved the first two songs. Good trio you work with. Too much fun was had by all . . the second was full o` Christmas pud and exhuded bonhomie. Kids in bed? The third I couldn`t access.

[b]Kenjazz

Loved the blend, cracked bell et al; very appealing (!) and laid back!

Dannac
An Olde English favourite. Good 6-8 tempo with good variations between verses. Well done!

StringsandWood
Drummer boy; steady and precise. Augurs well for your next submission! Good to hear and a super sounding piano.

nraple
Henry 8 did something right . . a popular choice tonight! And why not? Steady as she blows. And your keyboard sounded terrific.

RogerRansom O Holy night. One I missed . . .damn!

MrSuperhunky
This was a terrific arrangement of something I was definitely not expecting; a film score? Variety of range and playing was exemplary; Enigmatic! Just too good, man.

Ragdoll
It was a big download. I`ve had trouble with Box; they want me to register. Don`t decry your efforts. You play considerably less wrong notes than I ever do. I heard only one . . The speed and fluency is round the corner and will certainly come!

Wonderfdul listening to these, guys; Well done!

Thanks peterws,
yes it will... I only had about 2 weeks with this before I over stretched my fingers trying to keep from falling on the ice. I just hope I can get back to HT practice soon.

AFA less wrong notes than you, I dare say your pieces are much more challenging `eh?. laugh

Indeed, I had committed to post something before and felt obligated. Sure wish it had been further along. The only other things I had that were actually fresh were my parts of duets I had from last year. Thanks for the encouragement though.

Aramadia - That was a lot of fun! A wonderful production all around. It was a difficult arrangement, and I loved that modulation in the middle. Kudos to your camera person. It really seemed like I was watching a Christmas special!
