Soundboard n. 2 (2014)
This is a gorgeous collection of nineteen [sic] traditional Christmas carols ... The century of composition and country of origin of the pieces are included in the index. Most of the carols are rather easy to play, although one should be able to sight-read the whole fretboard and be efficient in artificial and natural harmonics, barre chords, and hinge barres. The detailed left-hand fingerings are useful, although there are a handful of instances in which the full note value cannot be held with the suggested fingerings ... It’s refreshing to come across a collection of Christmas carols arranged in such a variety of ways instead of simply by adding common chord progressions to the traditional melodies.
Classical Guitar Magazine (11-2013)
... a reasonably simple set of pieces with a few new items that were certainly not known to me ... there are plenty of chords and multiple voices but nothing too hard.
