Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Mark features once again in the Classical Guitar magazine with a brilliant arrangement of 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas'. Mark writes: "I’ve decided to arrange this seasonal popular song in a jazz idiom, in homage to master composer/ arranger/ guitarist Roland Dyens, who passed away recently". You can download the score and watch a video clip at: http://classicalguitarmagazine.com/play-mark-houghtons-dyens-inspired-version-of-have-yourself-a-merry-little-christmas/
