Please click on Christmas Carols to see a complete Song List (same titles as 4 violins).
Christmas 4-viola novelties – contemporary AND classical styles!! The level of difficulty for Volume I is intermediate (minimum Seitz, Kuchler, Reiding, Vivaldi concerti). The unique feature about these arrangements is the contrast between the contemporary (1st verse) and classical (2nd verse) styles. There is a lot of busy passagework in the faster carols and lots of moving inner voices in the slower carols.
The melody is traded off between all four viola parts.
Use the drop-down menu to choose either four bound parts with a digital score or completely digital. Don't forget to read in the score how/why these carols were written...!
