Product Description

This beautiful Christmas folk melody by John Jacob Niles is arranged as an instrumental trio (for two C-instruments with piano accompaniment). The beautiful, lyrical style of this instrumental piece creates a mellow, curious atmosphere and is an ideal selection for any church setting.

Though notated with FLUTE on part 1 and VIOLIN on part 2, the ranges are also accessible for other combinations of C instruments (2 violins, 2 flutes, etc.). Ranges for each instrument are as follows: FLUTE (Part 1) ~ E4 to B5; VIOLIN (Part 2) ~ D4 to B5. For violin players, all notes on both parts are playable in the first position making this piece an excellent choice for early-intermediate string players.

Both the FLUTE and VIOLIN get to lead with the melody at times making it enjoyable and equally challenging for both players while adding variety for the listeners. For the first verse, the FLUTE carries the melody and the VIOLIN plays melody for the second verse. For the final (third) verse, the two parts alternate playing the melody as a solo followed by playing as a duet for the concluding phrases. The audio sample begins at the pickup to measure 7 after the PIANO introduction.

The purchase price includes these printing options:
1. a grand staff (8 pages) with all parts on each page
2. separate scores for the FLUTE and VIOLIN (2 pages each) and PIANO (4 pages)
3. a combined FLUTE and VIOLIN score (3 pages)
