Product Description

Have yourself a COMPOUND CHRISTMAS - 3 GUITARS/LARGE ENSEMBLE with optional bass part
For Classical or Acoustic Guitar - sometimes it's erroneously listed here as Electric Guitar.

Derek Hasted writes "Ideal for those with limited experience of guitar or those with limited time to rehearse, this little suite of 4 well-known UK Christmas carols runs for 6 minutes. It suits a mixed ability ensemble from early intermediate to intermediate.

Contains "In Dulci Jubilo", "Masters In This Hall", "Gabriels Message" and "The Sussex Carol".

All the pieces are in compound time and the carols have a real sense of energy. Each carol has multiple verses which gradually build the sound.

They can be played separately, or as a medley where the next carol starts immediately after the previous, and the carols are presented so that the key changes in the medley are unobtrusive.

Guitar 3 is presented in treble and bass clefs to suit a conventional guitar and also a bass guitar or string bass. Both versions can be played at the same time for a bigger sound.

I hope you enjoy playing these pieces!"

This is one of a large and growing range of accessible ensembles from experienced arranger Derek Hasted, and is supplied as full score and parts. Derek's website at www.derek-hasted.co.uk/smp lists all his arrangements by title and by "number of instruments", with links to soundclips and sample score.
