2nd edition - new and improved.

Volume 2 of our Christmas collection (the "Red Book") contains ten classic Christmas carols that both you and your audience are sure to love.

Be sure to also check out Volumes 1 and 3, each with 10 different Christmas carols!  [You might also like "American Patriotic Music for All, Volume 1" with four classic patriotic tunes and three complete Sousa marches.]

These holiday favorites can be played with anywhere from 1 to 7 parts, suitable for a single solo, a chamber group, a pickup group for church choir accompaniment, or a full band or orchestra (school, community, or professional). This is one of the most versatile collections you'll ever use!

The audio clip has an excerpt of one carol performed as a full orchestra, a string quartet, and a woodwind duet.

The carols included in Volume 2 are:
I Saw Three Ships
Angels We Have Heard on High
Away in a Manger (Cradle Song)
Deck the Halls
Good Christian Men Rejoice (In Dulci Jubilo)
Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming
O Little Town of Bethlehem (Forest Green)
The First Noel
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
O Holy Night

Each carol is in its original key, so it is easy to combine these with your own choir or piano/organ parts. Each carol also includes a newdescant counter-melody to feature your soloists and add a unique sound to your performance.

For maximum flexibility, this collection is distributed as both individual parts and full-score books for C, Bb, Eb, and F instruments, allowing players to trade parts on different verses and songs. All four transpositions work together, so you can have different instruments playing from different books. There are no page turns within a song, so it is very easy to play from the scores. This collection also has separate parts for every individual instrument, containing one harmony plus melody and descant.

The overall arrangement is rated "intermediate", but certain instrument combinations might be more advanced depending on the range of the instruments. Please consult the part ranges below.
