A Christmas Selection Box Volume 2 contains an assortment of carols from around the world, sufficiently complex to be of interest to the advancing player, creatively and imaginatively arranged for solo guitar by Tanja MiriÄ‡.
Through the use of musical techniques such as key changes, unusual harmonic inflections and varying accompaniment configurations Tanja has found new ways to present these perennial melodies, transforming them from mere ‘melody with chordal accompaniment’ into full blown classical guitar art pieces with a character of their own.
Play them for personal pleasure or to entertain the troops during the festivities, or even use the more complex ‘stand out’ arrangements as recital repertoire. Also makes the perfect gift for the guitarist in your life!
"One would not typically review arrangements of Christmas carols in these pages, but this particular collection merits at least a brief mention. It features carols both familiar and unfamiliar, making it a welcome addition to the available literature. The arrangements are idiomatic, lie naturally on the instrument, and appropriate for guitarists with intermediate to advanced technique. ...this volume could prove a welcome addition to one’s gig bag." –Walter Aaron Clark - Soundboard THE JOURNAL OF THE GUITAR FOUNDATION OF AMERICA Vol. 48 No. 4 December 2022
