Winterludes is a heartwarming collection of Christmas music, arranged for solo marimba by Brian Blume. The 7 included arrangements are thoughtfully adapted for the experienced marimbist, and are equally appropriate for concert performance or in worship settings. Each piece includes a brief history, a few personal thoughts behind Blume’s arrangement, and lyrics to those songs that have them.
The pieces are designed to be played on a 5.0-octave instrument (though some may be cleverly adapted to fit onto smaller keyboards if necessary). Through these masterful adaptations, performers and listeners alike will find reverence and connection to the Christmas spirit.
