Product Description
In my years of teaching strings, I have come across many “simplified” versions of Christmas Carols, which “dumb” the carols down, making them less than musically satisfying to play; as well as “fancy” arrangements that take a lot of practice to perfect, and can only be performed with the whole group present.
I have often wanted to play basic (hymnal) arrangements, but… violas cannot read bass clef/students cannot easily find their line on a piano part, etc. Here are some hymns…not arranged, just straight out of the hymnal, that your intermediate string players can read and quickly learn for holiday “gigs” such as school open houses, fund raising events, sing-alongs, etc.

♪ Basic hymnal arrangements (Vln. 1 always has melody)
♪ Suitable for intermediate strings (Up to 2 sharps and 2 flats in the key signatures/Viola part has Low F#s on C string, etc.)
♪ Fingered and bowed
♪ Courtesy accidentals printed throughout to prevent errors in performance
♪ Songs in this set: Silent Night, We Three Kings, What Child Is This?, The First Noel

♪ Two other Sets in the Series Available:
Christmas Carols 2
Christmas Carols 3
