Exquisite! A set of variations like no other. Helman has done it again, giving organists a truly fantastic set of variations on a favorite Christmas tune. Each variation includes the text, offering an idea of the musical image portrayed. These are not for the average organist and will make a spectacular addition to any recital or worship service. This deserves a serious look by serious organists. The set opens with a flowing pastorale and then a trio followed by a brilliant trumpet tune. Next is a beautiful meditation in mixed meter with the melody in the pedal, and the set closes with a splashy toccata. EDITOR'S TOP PICK.
