Detailed Description

Fiddle Like the Dickens! (Christmas Carols and Fiddle Tunes from Scrooge's Time). Arranged by Tim McCarrick. Orchestra. String Orchestra. Belwin Intermediate String Orchestra. Christmas; Winter. Conductor Score & Parts. 144 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.31531).

Fiddle tunes and carols played in fiddle style! In his 1843 masterpiece, A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens describes the Christmas party and the first song the fiddler played after dinner. This medley starts the same way, with the old English slip jig, "Sir Roger De Coverly," as played by three solo fiddlers (2 violins and one viola), followed by "The Wassail Song," a fiddling version of "Angels We Have Heard on High." Next, the hornpipe "The Rights of Man" is cleverly joined to "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," and the rousing finale is the English jig/carol, "I Saw Three Ships!" It’s great fun!
