Five classic Christmas carols are included in this delightful seasonal collection of equal-partner duets for one piano/four hands. Arranged by Rosemary Byers with expert style and finesse, there is plenty of opportunity for both parts to have the spotlight. Students will especially enjoy the humorous rendition of We Wish You A Merry Christmas, whose middle section involves a bit of musical “sparring.” Easy to learn, yet full and rich sounding, these duet arrangements sparkle with the joy of the season. 5 duets: Deck The Hall; Silent Night; Joy To The World; What Child is This?; and We Wish You A Merry Christmas. Early Intermediate/Intermediate piano duets (HLSPL Level 4/5); Keys: F, C, G. Meters: Common Time; 3/4; 6/8. Range: Full keyboard. Performance time for each carol: under 2 minutes.
