Carols of Christmas, Set 1
Arrangements for Solo Instrument to Full Orchestra
Flexible for any number or combination of instruments with piano or CD accompaniment
In response to the huge popularity of "Hymns of Praise," here are ten delightful and accessible instrumental arrangements of seasonal carols. With the exception of the percussion book, each book includes a Solo and an Ensemble part for each carol.
Options for use include:
1. Solo instrument with piano or orchestrated accompaniment track. The piano book works as accompaniment for all instruments as does the accompaniment CD.
2. Multiple instruments and piano or track.
3. Full orchestra.
These arrangements are in the grade II to IV level and are accessible by players from eighth grade and above.
They are good lengths for preludes, offertories, and featured instrumental performance in the church or school setting. Additionally, they are in good vocal ranges if adding congregational or choral singing is a option.
