3 Convoluted Carols
By Anthony St. Pierre February 2022
 
S A
 
 
Although highly convoluted, these three carols are readily recognizable: 'Away in a Manger,' 'Joseph Dearest,' and 'Entre le boeuf.' They complement '6 Contorted Yule Carols' and '3 Contorted Yule Carols,' which are also available here. Play along instructions are included with the score.
-- Anthony St. Pierre
 
 
Get started on your twisted holiday concert programming early with these three fun new Soprano-Alto duos from Anthony St. Pierre. Based on familiar carols, these short, easy pieces feature cute knock-off titles, surprise harmonies and even barnyard sounds on the recorder using throat vibrato. Two high C’s in the soprano are approached by step and thus can be easily achieved.
-- Glen Shannon
