Sounds of the Season (2021)
Sounds of the Season is a unique publication featuring 12 magnificent Christmas carol arrangements for solo instrument or voice and piano by Kenneth Downie, William Himes and Andrew Wainwright. In addition, high quality orchestral MP3 accompaniment tracks can be purchased at www.brookwrightmusic.com/product-page/sounds-of-the-season-instrumental-accompaniment-tracks
This resource will be ideal for soloists wishing to carol on a street corner or in a shopping mall while playing the backing tracks through a speaker, or equally in a concert setting accompanied by a pianist.
As a wide variety of levels of abilities are catered for, optional cuts or repeats are included in some of the arrangements to allow for simplified versions.
