We are still finishing off a piano album of Christmas Music. Who knew that Jingle Bells would work so well in the minor? There is nothing like arranging Christmas Carols during a rather wet May to discover how depressing you can make them sound. Turns out that not only Jingle Bells, but Ding Dong Merrily on High and The First Nowell can all be made to sound utterly miserable without much effort. Imagine what we’ve done to God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (already in the minor) and we’ve decided it’s probably best not to get started on In the Bleak Midwinter until the sun comes out.
