This delightful collection of original 3-part arrangements of both well-known holiday chestnuts and more obscure carols will warm your heart without breaking your fingers. All 22 of these pieces are easy to moderate, with recognizable tunes that might not always be clear from their titles. Most pieces are just 1-2 pages, with an occasional 3-pager, all in score only. Instrumentation varies among Altos, Tenors and Basses, with no Soprano in any of them. Bass parts are all notated in treble clef, for practice reading Bass as if it were alto up the octave. When holiday gatherings are possible again, this collection should be the first thing to bring out with your friends to kick off the season!
