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?

Click here to hear the duet on "Joy to the World" performed by Eddie Lewis!
                   
(note: "Joy to the World" is the most "jazzy" of all of the duets in this collection. All
                    of the the others are in what most would describe as a more "traditional" setting.

                    Twelve Christmas Duets for Clarinets

                   
Twelve Christmas Duets for Saxophones (or Oboes)

          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 clarinets
are 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.
