Product Information

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen by Jarrod Radnich - Digital Sheet Music
This English Christmas carol’s original author is unknown and the carol first appeared with lyrics in 1833 in a collection of seasonal carols assembled by William B. Sandys. It recounts the visits of the shepherds to the Christ child as told in Luke 2:8-20 and is one of the most frequently arranged carols. This new arrangement hints at the original carol’s somewhat dark Aeolian mode (natural minor scale), but it brings refreshing re-harmonization by switching between the Aeolian and the Modern Dorian modes. The piece leaves the listener with a haunting feeling of completion as the final chord rests not on the tonic of the new key (F#), but on the bVI (flat VI). This D major chord serves as the pivot chord between the two keys, F# minor and G (harmonic) minor and would be the final chord of a half-cadence in the original key.

Advanced Piano Solo Series
Setting themselves apart from numerous other compositions labeled "advanced" in many books, the arrangements in the Advanced Piano Solo Series are in fact considered by recital judges to be advanced. While arrangements produce a grand and full sound, they do not contain the lengthy runs, extreme jumps, and rapid rhythm changes found in the Virtuosic Series. These arrangements provide countless opportunities for piano students to practice and master specific techniques, and they may be played slower than notated without losing the beauty and grand scale of the arrangement. They are sure to please every audience.

Simply beautiful

This Christmas Carol needs some skills to play, but it is worth. It sounds lovely and very emotional. It is simply beautiful. I really recommend this arrangement of Jarrod Radnich!
