Last year I posted my version of “We Three Kings” for Christmas time. I was thinking of making it a tradition to give out some Christmas Music during Advent. And, now there was just this Facebook discussion about never escaping the clutches of the melody Greensleeves. Kevin F. complains that his music teacher is having him play “What Child is This” as a seasonal melody. Dustin C. then mentions that Greensleeves is like the Renaissance/Medieval version of “Stairway to Heaven.” Well, I beg to differ, but only because my version of “Stairway to Heaven” is actually based on Greek mythology, but I’ve got my version/variation of Greensleeves is right here for ya Kevin. Just download from the link and take this to your guitar teacher.

What Child is This (download pdf file link inactive now... What? Did you miss it?). It’s only nine pages, but guitars 1 and 2 are redundant.

You can find the original recording (before I notated any music) at Soundclick (listen to Greensleeves link). It was actually an improvisational piece that I did during the the olden KAF days.

Both of the above mentioned melodies/songs (W3K and WCiT), by the way, are on the new Christmas CD that came in last week. If YOU want a copy, just come out to St. John, and I’ll get you a FREE one off the rack. We have both a Christmas Eve candle light service at 11 pm and a single Christmas day service at 10 am this year. So, Get your CD before they run out! We’ve already gone through over 600 of them. (Unfortunately, there was a problem in production that cut about a second off two of the tracks – We do not recommend the company that replicated them. Those same two tracks, however, come directly from the CD Playing in the Water.)
