The Holiday Season canbe really painful for lower string players in any ensemble. Playing ‘cello in aCarol concert makes me want to cry. That is why I have created arrangements ofclassic Christmas Carols and Songs guaranteed not to bore the pants off yourviolist or ‘cellist. No more bashing out bass notes for the ‘cello, and no morechugging away on the off-beat for viola while the fiddles get soaring melodyafter soaring counter-melody. We deserve more than this, right guys? You gotit!

The 9 minutes of Christmas

Possibly the only string trio Carol Medley you will ever need!

A jolly romp through some of themost popular English language carols, The 9 minutes of Christmas is a medley for string trio (vln/vla/vc)lasting exactly 9 minutes (!) at given tempo. With optional 2nd violin for viola part.

Written with interest in all three parts, and taking turns withmelody and accompaniment, this is a very enjoyable arrangement for ensemblesof intermediate ability. If you have a great viola player or bored ‘cellists/he will love this! Contains some doublestopping of open and stopped strings. Bowingand dynamics are left to the discretionof the ensemble.

Note from the arranger: All my arrangements for stringsare conceived specifically with the aim of writing interesting parts for allplayers. Most parts do not go beyond 4thposition (with the exception of a few harmonicsin the lower string parts), making them suitable for student and mixed abilitygroups. A complete score and set of individual parts (violin, violin 2, viola,‘cello) is included. Enjoy and feel free to email comments or requests forother works to
