Cold and blustery winds along with loads of snow in the winter months are the norm in my corner of the world, particularly around Christmas. But the timeless message of Christ coming to earth as a tiny infant along with meaningful annual Christmas traditions is enough to warm even the coldest of winter days! For me, the heart of the Christmas celebration is found in the music of the season, a major reason for this project.
The collection you hold is designed as a practical and versatile resource for wind players, particularly flute and clarinet players. I think you will find these arrangements to be suitable considerations for your Christmas worship or concert needs. They span the spectrum stylistically with fresh interpretations of ageless melodies. May the joyous sounds of Christmas Winds warm your heart during the yuletide season! – Preface by Lloyd Larson
