Celtic Fiddle Harmony Christmas Music Multipack
PDF sheet music for my celtic-style instrumental arrangements of ten traditional Christmas carols.
Originally they were arranged for fiddle trio in three part harmony. Later I added an extra part so they could be played by string quartets. Both versions of each tune are included in this download. Some of the carols also have a newly composed middle section.
You can hear what these arrangements sound like here. (Please note: the piano is improvised to demonstrate the chord symbols; there is no piano score.)
You will also receive mp3 demo recordings when you buy this download.
For each tune I've included the fiddle trio score, with all three parts on one page, and the quartet score, which also includes individual instrument parts.
The quartet version has two extra alternative parts as well as standard string quartet: a violin 3 part in place of viola, and a viola version of the cello part.
This means that as well as string quartet or fiddle trio, it can be used by a diverse range of groups, e.g. a fiddle group that has some violas, or even just as a violin and viola duet, or violin and cello duet. The harmonies are versartile, and don't all need to be played at the same time.
The carols in this pack are:
*In the Bleak Midwinter
*Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly
*Ding Dong Merrily on High
*God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
*O Little Town of Bethlehem
*The First Noel
*Once in Royal David's City
*In Dulci Jubilo
