This collection of Christmas songs for flute and piano (or other keyboard instrument) by German composer Lothar Graap is a nice addition to the seasonal repertoire.  Collecting carols mostly from the German tradition, it offers straightforward arrangements for flute and piano in a good quality publication with beautifully clear, large print.  I can see these working well in lessons with students who want a change from the regular Christmas repertoire - neither part is ever above Grade 3 level, and many are easier, so great for teachers who like an easy accompaniment (me!), or for learner flautists to get together with their piano-learning friends.  Even if you don't recognise all the tunes, they will have a familiar seasonal feel and are a pleasure to play.  Graap says in his introduction that they are aimed at 'music-making in the home', and they are suitably approachable and enjoyable.

From the Publisher

A range of different instruments can be used to play the melody line. Furthermore the keys are chosen in a way that the popular carols can be sung easily by all voices.
