This arrangement of ‘Away in a Manger’ by Rebecca Faith incorporates two traditional melodies woven together seamlessly to create a refreshing interpretation of a universally familiar song. A verse of the traditional American tune is heard first on the piano before being interrupted by the flute taking over with the British melody. Piano interludes of the American themes return but never in full until the end of the piece where it returns to its original starting point. As much as the familiar melodies are recognisable they are laced with jazzy harmonies and a nonchalant improvisatory style. As with all of Rebecca's Christmas Carol arrangements this work is fresh and exciting for the more advanced flutist, but it is also important to note that these arrangements are not flute solos with piano accompaniment but rather material for a duo where the piano part is just as much a solo part as the flute. The collection of 10 Christmas Carols was written for the flute and piano duo 'Tranquillo', who recorded them as their debut album 'Tranquillo Christmas' in 2010. The CD has attracted some excellent reviews as well as interviews from the Musicians Union Magazine, BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Gloucestershire.
