Album Notes
Joel Rosenberger (Fresh Hymns) approaches his second album with the same delicacy and creativity as the first. His original piano interpretations of Christmas classics include a number of favorites, such as Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, O Holy Night, and Stille Nacht, but also include the less often heard carols like I Wonder as I Wander, Le Sommeil de l’Enfant Jesus (The Sleep of the Baby Jesus) and Ar Hyd y Nos (All Through the Night.)
This collection offers music that captures the peace, joy, and mystery of the season. It's perfect for tree trimming, winding down after a busy day of holiday activities, or contemplating the true meaning of Christmas.

Joel Rosenberger performs sensitive, intimate solo piano arrangements suitable for worship, contemplation, or sheer enjoyment.

As a child, Joel taught himself to play the family upright, eventually creating his own arrangements of hymns and popular songs, by ear. In 2005, with no real formal training (he took piano lessons for two semesters in college), and armed with a small, 72-key electronic keyboard, he began releasing his music in 2005 as a series of podcasts. Hymns, of course. He had been improvising and arranging these old melodies for years. Then the e-mail started arriving... from around the world... kind words, requests for sheet music and CDs, permission to use his work.

Several years and several projects later, Joel continues to compose, arrange, produce, and transcribe his own unique style of piano music. His curious nature drives him to refine and improve. And he still loves to get mail.

Merry Mary

These are very beautiful arrangements of some familiar and a few new Christmas songs. I would recommend it to anyone who loves good piano music or who wants Christmas music playing in the back-
ground. It is not intrusive, just enjoyable.
