Two-Part Carols and Christmas Songs


While standing on kettles during the Christmas season the use of “live” music has proven effective in communicating the message of Christmas. However, the necessary minimum of four players usually required (e.g. Carolers’ Favorites) simply may not be available so this collection of seasonal music has been compiled and arranged for just two instrumentalists. When performed in numerical order it is possible to present a program of variety and contrast with the least inconvenience of page turning.

A word of caution: some arrangements may be found more technically demanding (especially the 2nd part) than those in Carolers’ Favorites and a little rehearsal would not be amiss!
