The level of difficulty for Volume II is intermediate to advanced (minimum Seitz, Kuchler, Reiding, Vivaldi concerti). These carols contain more chromatic passages and are technically a bit more challenging than volume I.
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 ones. The melody is traded off between all four violin 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...!
