    This is a nice mix and is well rendered.

    Not quite my style, but that seems to change often.

    Well done

    This would be a fine addition to any band's holiday selections. A most pleasant arrangement with plenty of opportunity for individual performers to shine. And, if I may be so bold, it would make an excellent organ piece.

    This is a beautiful theme, and I like the orchestration . But I miss some variation in the arrangement. And more dynamics, but of course this would be much better with real instruments. I can't say it's the style I listen too often to. But you did good work with this. Keep it up :-)

    Thanks for listening, Ron.
    As I was writing this, I wanted to keep all of the focus on the original-not adding complexity.
    The Band "voice" has certain tendencies at various difficulty levels. I think with range, facility issues and interpretation this is about a level III on a scale of 5 levels.
    Hi Tom
    When you listen with organ in mind, I would agree, but I don't do organ....

    I'm not sure why I avoided listening to this. I think the word Rocking drove me away. This is much more gentle and pretty than I expected for the title. Very pretty arranging.

    Thanks for listening, tubajedimr.
    I've had this book of carols for about 40 years and never considered
    it because of the title.
    Rock as we know it had NUT-ING to do with this song.

    Another fine arrangement. This would be wonderful to hear at any concert. What is the Czech title?
