WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS: Songs Of The Season For Young People Arranged by DAN FOX: Published by ARCADE PUBLISHING for THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART in 1989 & arranged by DAN FOX. What better way to celebrate Christmas than through music and art! Here is a feast for the senses and fun for the family: twenty-five easy-to-play holiday favorites illustrated with works of art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The music is simple enough for young people to master and is suitable for piano, organ, violin, or recorder. Guitar chords are included for those who like to strum along. The songs featured range from the exuberant “Joy To The World” to the stately “Hark The Herald Angels Sing,” from the gentle “O Little Town Of Bethlehem” to the merry “Deck The Halls.” The selection represents the spirit of Christmas: joyful, peaceful, solemn, uplifting, loving and contemplative. Accompanying each song are works of art from the Museum’s collections—paintings, sculpture, tapestries, prints, and more. Hieronymus Bosch’s gentle “Adoration Of The Magi” illustrated the carol “What Child Is This?” Two glowing stained-glass panels accompany “Away In A Manger,” Sassetta’s picturesque “Journey Of The Magi” illuminates “We Three Kings Of Orient Are,” and lively, colorful prints suggest the festive mood of “Toyland.” We Wish You A Merry Christmas celebrates the simple pleasure of joining together in song, a holiday tradition that helps nurture hope, peace, and joy—three of the season’s most welcomed gifts.
