Notes and Editorial Reviews

Noël: A Classical Guitar Christmas is a collection new arrangements and transcriptions for solo guitar of hymns, carols and folk music that have been selected from over six centuries of musical tradition. This set includes Louis-Claude Daquin's brilliant Noël X, originally for organ, newly transcribed for this recording. Traditional Spanish/Latin-American guitar favorites by Miguel Llobet and Agustin Barrios are also included. Distinctively American voices are represented by Vince Guaraldi's "Chistmastime is Here" and his classic piano arrangement of "O Tannenbaum" and by Gene Bertoncini's sublime re-imagining of "Greensleeves". The guitarist is John Muratore.
