Christmas Carols for All, Volume 1



Make sure you also look at Christmas Carols for All Volume 2 and Volume 3, each with ten different carols!
Volume 1 of our Christmas collection (the "Green Book") contains ten classic Christmas carols that both you and your audience are sure to love.

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 choir accompaniment, or a full band or orchestra. This is one of the most versatile collections you'll ever use! The carols included in Volume 1 are:

  1. Angels from the Realms of Glory
  2. Away in a Manger (Mueller)
  3. God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen
  4. I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
  5. Joy to the World
  6. O Christmas Tree (O Tannenbaum)
  7. O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
  8. Silent Night
  9. We Three Kings
  10. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks
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 new original descant counter-melody to feature your soloists and add a unique sound to your performance.

This composition can be played by 6,338,302,698 different combinations of instruments (really!).
