This collection features nine of the carols from my 2019 album Christmas Carols for Violin & Guitar, arranged for SATB (soprano-alto-tenor-bass) in keys which I hope you’ll find easily singable. Unfortunately, the lyrics of the album’s tenth carol, Carol of the Bells is under copyright and had to be left out of this collection. :(
This hymnal can be read on iPad and is also easily printable. All carols are arranged with English lyrics except for "Pois que dos Reys Nostro Sennor" which is in its original Galician due to an absence of an English translation.
Growing up, I sang in many choirs and for me, singing Christmas music captures the true magic of the holiday season. These nine European carols are among my favorites and I hope singing them brings you as much joy as it brings me. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
