Stille Nacht - Christmas Carols for Guitar (R. Hayward)

Rossini Hayward, one of the most creative guitarists of his generation, has written a sequence of Christmas carol arrangements that range across the centuries and over continents. These beautiful pieces respect the original carols while bringing to them ingenious new features. Seven of the arrangements involve overdubbing by Hayward himself with voice, percussive effects or guitar, adding new colours, but showing that he always ‘understands the charm and power of simplicity’ (Classical Guitar).
