Twelve Christmas Duets
...is a collection of intermediate and advanced-level duets on traditional
Christmas carols. They are challenging at times (unlike many published Christmas duets, these are not for beginners!); at times, joyful; at times, uplifting; at times, serene.
In addition to being a great resource for teachers to play at
lessons with their students, these duets are suitable for informal
Christmas performances and many are appropriate for church services.
Included are: Away in a Manger, Deck the Halls, Hark! The Herald Angels
Sing, Joy to the World, O Come, All Ye Faithful, O Come, O Come,
Emmanuel, O Holy Night, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night, The
Wassail Song, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and What Child is This? Twelve Christmas Duets for Flutes
Important Note! These duets are arranged
specifically for the instruments designated in each collection (often
differing in keys, ranges, and with other alterations so as to be
appropriate for that specific instrument) and, in most cases, the
collections for flutes, trumpets, and clarinetsare NOT compatible with each other!
...for Trumpet with piano or organ
Angels from the Realms of Glory A classic Christmas carol arranged for Bb or C trumpet with organ or
piano accompaniment. Opening with a brief flourish, the trumpet soloist
quickly moves to a straightforward rendering of the melody. When the
keyboard takes over the tune, the trumpet performs a fanfare-like
obbligato that culminates in an impressive coda. Well-suited for
Christmas programs of all types and for church services. An alternate
keyboard part is provided should the soloist want to perform this on C
trumpet. Click to hear a synthesized version of the arrangement.
...for solo piano, organ, or keyboard
Angel Bells Celebratory in nature, Angel Bells is an advanced-intermediate new piano
solo for Christmas written in a vibrant and contemporary style. While
requiring only intermediate level technique, its frequent use of a duple
rhythm melody set against a triple rhythm accompaniment and its
occasional use of odd meters and meter changes probably make this more
appropriate for the advanced-intermediate level pianist. Allegro
throughout, this work is perfect for someone looking to expand from the
classic favorite carol repertoire and with its uplifting spirit would be
appropriate as a seasonal church prelude or postlude. Although lyrics
are provided, Angel Bells was originally conceived and published with the of it being a keyboard solo.
