The traditional carol, Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, arranged for soprano recorder and orff instruments is a great piece to showcase instrumental music at a Christmas or holiday program. The recorder parts use the notes D, E, G, A, and B with the rhythms of quarter, half, and whole notes. Recorder 2 is optional. The orff accompaniment uses soprano and alto glockenspiels, alto and soprano xylophones, bass xylophones and metallophones, and contrabass xylophone bars. It also includes a simple drum part that may be played on any combination of drums. This includes individual recorder parts, orff accompaniment score, and teaching suggestions.
