This Christmas favorite is made easy enough for a late elementary level pianist to enjoy while retaining the beauty of the original song. The bass line is open fifths in quarter note rhythm groups of 3 beats each, against a simple right hand single-note melody. Lyrics are included, and the key of F Major makes a reasonable vocal range for most voices who might want to sing along. Glover level 2.
