DAVID LANZ OSD URN W\Uanvin oa a NEW AGE PIANO od Kero. — } CHRISTMAS EVE Pah tav-Leonaro: WECORPORATION CHRISTMAS EVE Winter is the time when Mother Earth takes a breath inward, and I believe it very natural for us to pause and do the same — to allow ourselves time for introspection amidst all the celebration and activity of the holidays. The music on CHRISTMAS EVE was created during such a time in my own life. Though the arrangements for some of these carols and the idea for the alburn began in the Winter of 1990, most of the work and all of the recording occurred at home during an “extended Christmas respite” that followed a very rigorous touring schedule during most of 1993. ‘As the work progressed and each carol developed from fragments and wisps to finished works, l imagined that an Angel, a Guardian Angel of sorts, existed for ‘each of the songs. These Angels seemed to guide my hand and heart throughout the process. They also resulted in the seven Angel Improvisations threaded between the carols. Musical inward breaths, I the music encourages your own quiet introspections, that was my hope and intention. This mood is surely the very essence of the spirit of the holiday. But if you do take that inward breath, don't be surprised if you feel a light brush of ‘Angel wings and hear the softest of whispers. Wishing you peace and God's blessings, “Above the deep and dreamless sleep, the silent stars go by.” CHRISTMAS EVE + TABLE OF CONTENTS A Brush of Wings An Angel at Midnight The Angel King Angel of Comfort Angel of Hope Angel of Joy Angels We Have Heard on High The First Noél/Christmas Eve Waltz God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen “| Saw the Path of the Angels” Joy to the World Come All Ye Faithful O Come, O Come, Emmanuel O Holy Night O Little Town of Bethlehem Silent Night What Child is This ANGEL OF COMFORT , Composed b DAMID LAN: Stow With pedal Port Washington Road Milwaukee, W1 53212-1063 ‘All Rights Reserved ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH Arranged by DAVID LAN; Flowing With pedal loco oll " ee RH, over LH. = GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN Arranged by DAVID LANE With motion Slower ANGEL OF JOY Composed by DAVID LANZ Briskly With pedal 20 O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL Arranged by DAVID LANZ Moderately With pedal THE ANGEL KING Comy DAVID LAN; Freely With pedat (© 1996 Nara Musi, tne, (@M) 4650 N.
