A different take on Christmas: well-known Christmas numbers in beat, jazz, pop, soul, and swing styles! "Vom Himmel hoch" mutates into a stylish jazz waltz and "Stille Nacht" (for some, almost a nightmare in the original) becomes atmospheric, disguised mood music. Thomas Gabriel has composed eight exciting, sophisticated arrangements for choir and piano accompaniment, some with an added melody instrument, and with lots of opportunities for improvisation.
