I was searching for pieces for my students when I ran across this piece. It is absolutely beautiful - sounds just like Christmas. ❤️
Fabulous take on Carol Of The Bells. My teenage son asked me to purchase as soon as he heard this arrangement and is having lots of fun learning it. Can’t wait for Christmas season!
I love this piece of music. This work from Handel's Messiah is one of my favorites and this arrangement for piano is fantastic. It is rich and full with runs and polyphony that are so beautiful when played by the symphony orchestra. I am so
glad I am able to sit down and basically sight read it at a slow pace. It will take practice for me to get it up to speed but I am loving playing it. My level of playing is intermediate. Thank you David Hicken!
This is a beautiful arrangement of In the Bleak Midwinter. After hearing David's recording on YouTube, I was happy to find that the sheet music is available.
I was looking for a fun and elaborate piece to play with my piano teacher, and Gemini was the perfect fit. I’m a intermediate student and Gemini brings the level of complexity that I need with the fun to keep me motivated!
I really enjoy playing Gemini with my twin sister. We like switching parts and experimenting with the speed of the piece. This is a fun and challenging duet.
Hey - this is really a great piano version of this famous and popular movie track. Left hand is somehow challenging to play ( at least for me 😂) but it gives a wonderful drive .
It‘s now part of my huge collection of David Hicken. The first song I heard from him was The Quest and later The letter - since then I started playing the piano again - and songs form you David keeps me exercising
( hope my English is not that bad and was able to transport my thoughts and feelings)
Bye from Germany
Soft, beautiful, deeply emotional, romantic and paints a beautiful picture in your mind; relaxing to the brain. I get the best pleasure playing this piece at night to the moon and stars.
This is a wonderful little piece to sight read. I love the sound of it and am excited to try it out on my digital harpsichord as well as on my piano.
I have been listening to Mr. Hicken's music for several years on youtube, and it's some of my favorite piano and organ music. I wanted some of his music to listen to in my car, and I decided that it was about time I showed my appreciation by purchasing, so I have.
Thank you for sharing your artistry for so long on youtube, and thank you for making it available to purchase. I used to play piano, and organ a little, but these days, I'm much rather just listen!
Absolutely love this arrangement by David. I have listened to it a 100 times and am now learning it on my own. His prowess for piano is truly marvelous and I look forward to purchasing more music in the near future. 5 MASSIVE stars!
I listened to several of the songs on youtube for a few of the music books and decided on Stories Of You Book to purchase. I purchased the electronic version and love the quick easy process to receive the book and started to learn the music. So far very happy.
My favorite version of this carol. It won't be easy for me to learn, but I look forward to the journey!
David Hicken's passion for his music will touch your heart. For me, hearing his compositions creates images of stories that could have been written in Jane Austin's novels. To borrow a quote, “It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.” Thank you for your music David!
Non ho mai trovato degli arrangiamenti così belli di brani natalizi, fino ad ora.
Adoro questa raccolta! Come per altre, i brani sono di varie difficoltà, si troverà sicuramente qualcosa alla propria portata. Io sto iniziando con Silent Night, un arrangiamento stupendo. Consigliatissimo, per un Natale pieno di musica meravigliosa.
I have never found such beautiful arrangements of Christmas songs, until now.
I love this collection! As with others, the songs are of various difficulties, you will certainly find something within your reach. I'm starting with Silent Night, a wonderful arrangement. Highly recommended, for a Christmas full of wonderful music.
I brani sono uno più bello dell'altro. In particolare adoro "Sir Arthur" che sto attualmente studiando. Alcuni pezzi sono molto impegnativi, altri più accessibili. Ma la difficoltà dei brani e la fatica dello studio è ripagata dalla straordinaria bellezza di ogni singolo brano.
The songs are one more beautiful than the other. I particularly love "Sir Arthur" who I am currently studying. Some pieces are very challenging, others more accessible. But the difficulty of the pieces and the effort of the study is repaid by the extraordinary beauty of each single piece.
Di questo album mi ha colpito tantissimo "Canon in D meets Ode to Joy". Poi ho ascoltato il resto e mi sono innamorata dell'interno album. Brani bellissimi, consigliatissimo!
"Canon in D meets Ode to Joy" struck me a lot from this album. Then I listened to the rest and fell in love with the whole album. Beautiful songs, highly recommended!
