A wonderfully adaptable collection of favorite Christmas hymns, carols, and songs designed for instrumental caroling or as accompaniment to singing. Arranged with melody and harmony parts for any combination of instruments including C instruments (violin, recorder, guitar), treble clef B-flat instruments (trumpet, clarinet, or tenor saxophone), E-flat instruments (alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, alto clarinet), and bass clef instruments (trombone, bassoon, baritone horn, cello, or string bass). In addition, a special part for flute is provided in the range which is comfortable for that instrument. The harmonization's correspond with those found in many hymnals and, therefore, instruments may play out of this book in worship celebrations with congregational singing, choirs, organ, piano, and other instruments. All of the parts are combined in this volume, so each part will need their own copy. Titles include: Angels for the Realms of Glory; Angels We Have Heard on High; As With Gladness Men of Old; Coventry Carol; Deck the Halls; God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen; Good Christian Men, Rejoice; Hark! The Herald Angels Sing; It Came Upon the Midnight Clear; and more!
