Christmas Recorder Sheet Music - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
This song is in the key of F major. The notes used are C, D, E, F, G, A, Bb, C and D.
It is written in 4/4 time. This song makes a great note review and slur lesson because the timing is so simple and repetitive. It's all quarter notes, with the exception of a pair of eighth notes. There's also an easy pick-up measure.
✫ all bars are numbered..that's a big help when you're teaching a class.
✫ big notation
✫ all note names and a duplicate with no note names
✫ colored notes with corresponding colored recorder
✫ fun recorders showing the fingering for the notes
✫ crisp images (still gorgeous when using an "economy ink" setting)
✫ beautiful projections (300 dpi )
✫ low ink usage duplicate
✫ written on Lilypond (the highest
quality music software)
✫ seven classroom-practice mp3's at 85, 95, 105, 115, 125, 135 and 145 beats-per-minute. (tempo)
A "Teacher Key" is also included. I recommend you use a translucent recorder when you show your students.
Just thought I'd mention this: there's no "funny stuff" in these song arrangements. I've noticed some people like to put their own "personal touch" to Christmas songs. I'm not one of those people. They are transcribed traditionally, as most of us remember them.
The "Teacher Key" is also included.
