The Carol Medley – Once in Royal Davids City, O Come all Ye Faithful, Silent Night, Away in a Manger (2 versions), The first Nowell and finishing with We Wish you a Merry Christmas. There are a couple of time signature changes, and a change between G major and C major, resulting in a few F lever changes for each part, but plenty of time to do it!
Harp one (the beginners) carry the tune through the whole piece, while harp two and three (intermediates) harmonise and accompany.
Carols are fantastic for beginners as they know the tunes, and can keep up, even when their fingers give up for a while.
There are two versions of each part – one spread over many pages, and one more cramped onto fewer pages, and less page turns. My students have all coped with the latter over turning more pages.
Most of Anna Dunwoodie’s arrangements are available only in PDF download format. Because she lives in New Zealand, shipping would be very expensive, so we offer you the convenience of PDF download on this arrangement. You will receive an e-mail with a link for you to click and download. We suggest saving in a folder on your computer, and backing it up.
