Alfred Music's Ultimate Christmas Instrumental Solos series offers a versatile selection of Christmas music for flute, clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, trumpet, horn in F, trombone, violin, viola, and cello. Each book contains carefully edited arrangements appropriate to each instrument, and well suited for level 2-3 students. Popular carols are presented both individually and in medleys and suites. Celebration Medley includes the cheerful classics Hallelujah Chorus and Joy to the World. Manger Medley incorporates unique arrangements of Away in a Manger and Silent Night. And Carol Medley features songs great for caroling, such as Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and The First Noel. Suites include Themes from The Nutcracker Suite, which showcases the famous Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy and March; and Folk Carol Suite, which contains the well-known Coventry Carol (Lullay, Thou Little Tiny Child). These suites are especially adaptable, with movements or themes that can be played consecutively, as one large piece, or on their own---each section is conveniently printed on a single page and has its own separate track on the provided MP3 CD. The CD includes a fully orchestrated DEMO track of each song, which features a live instrumental solo performance, followed by a PLAY-ALONG track. Also included are PDFs of piano accompaniments, and Alfred's Tempo Changer Software.

    Slightly disappointed it was all first position. Some of the rhythms, few swing songs and the speed with the CD makes it early intermediate. Arrangements are nicely done but limited in range. Including the piano part was nice but putting it on the CD instead could have reduced the cost...

  • December 05, 2017 Perfect for the beginner to Intermediate student!

    This collection of tunes is the perfect one to get your kiddos practicing again! The arrangements are very tastefully done, with or without the accompanying CD, and the pieces range in difficulty level to meet a variety of levels of learning. The very beginner will find them challenging, but attainable...

    , as the tunes are so familiar that the rhythms should not be difficult. Intermediate students will enjoy sightreading the pieces while their teachers can emphasize aspects of musicality. There are a few medleys with more than one song, but each song can be used as a separate entity. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!

  • February 08, 2017 We loved it!

    We ordered several books in order to play a good selection of tunes for Christmas with violin and piano. The parts are well written, easy to read, and the arrangements good. We actually ended up ditching a lot of the tunes in the other books and using almost all the...

    songs in this one. Highly recommend.
