Christmas for Beginner String Ensembles (Playing Score)

Christmas is a time for making music especially in ensembles.  This edition with its very easy arrangements for two violins, viola and cello is ideal for beginner string players to get into the Christmas spirit.  The 27 pieces are based either on works of Baroque composers such as Lully or Handel, or on traditional, mostly German, Christmas carols.  One of the pieces requires an additional violin, another a viola.

With their uncomplicated structure and accompanying parts which tie in closely with the melody, these pieces encourage ensemble playing from an early age.

- Playing score

- Ideal for the youngest string ensembles

- Very easy level of difficulty
