On Christmas Night

About this album...

There are so many beautiful Christmas melodies out there that it was difficult to choose which ones to include on this set of recordings. In the end, I simply went with my favourites, plus a couple of tunes that it would have been difficult to miss out!

Many of the pieces I included are based on beautiful melodies and chants that date back to the Middle Ages

All the music is arranged by myself, and the sheet music for many of the arrangements on this album can be purchased in my sheet music store.
