Christmas is a joyful time: presents under the tree, seeing friends and relatives, the wonderful smell of cookies and much more. Christmas is also a time for making music. Song and sound play an important role in creating a Christmas atmosphere.

Every land and region has its favorite Christmas carols. These are usually played though, for the most part, in the country from which they originate. It is always nice to get to know songs of other places. In this way, we can experience the atmosphere of Christmas as celebratet in other regions.

With this edition we invite you to play more music and experience even more the Christmas season.

    Excellent arrangements of traditional Christmas melodies. Melodic lines passes to each instrment. Good for sightreading for intermediate players. Very enjoyable for listeners and performers! Five Stars!

    Difficulty Level:
  • May 31, 2006 Not from your hymnal!

    Purchased these for use at a Christmas tea, but the arrangements were not long enough/varied enough for our needs (we added repeats.) Would probably be well suited for a beginning string quartet. Melody (and pieces of the melody) are frequently passed to all players, so probably needs strong players...

    on all parts. Arrangements are rhythmically interesting (creative but not wacky) but are rather short.
