    I love this book! The arrangements are very well done with beautiful, unique harmonies. I will definitely be buying more of his music.

  • November 25, 2019 Solid arrangements!

    I have always liked the idea of classical pieces with hymns but never had any luck getting a good set of arrangements. This book is the only one I have found that I actually enjoy going back to in that genre. I liked how he changed things up from the...

    usually keys and arranging styles because I get tired of playing the same sounding things. Plus it makes me practice and since I've been a teacher practice time has gone down the tubes. So all in all I would recommend it highly.

  • November 15, 2018 Don't Buy This! Buy Christmas with a Velvet Touch

    Fortunately, I first encountered this arranger's glorious compilation in "Christmas with a Velvet Touch." Had I started my musical association with Fettke's "Carols with Classics" I would not have gone any further with Fettke. Unfortunately, I agree with one of the previous reviewers. These arrangements just don't...

    work. The "merging" of the carols with the classics is ham-handed. Sometimes I can even feel Fettke flail so that these songs come out nice and tidy.

  • February 11, 2017 Carols With Classics

    One of my adult students brought this book to her lesson and we worked on the Away in a Manger/Brahms Lullaby combo. I found the interpretations lovely, with interesting harmonies that were still accessible to upper-intermediate level students. I think they are especially enjoyed by students who already...

    have a familiarity with classical music, and enjoy melding them with Christmas carols.

    I have really enjoyed this book. Not too difficult. I love the mixing of classical w/carols! The challenge is one of musicality.
