Piccolo part from Christmas Eve (Flute Choir)

6 minutes
Classical music

Parts are available free with the purchase of the score.

The idea for "Christmas Eve" came out of one of my Flute Choir's practices. Our piccolo (that's right, the instrument, not the player) decided to play in G minor instead of G major, but keeping the same pitches. And then…the idea was there. Afterwards, I quickly went home and sped through this score.

The introduction should be played very lightly. All staccato notes should be played EXTREMELY lightly. The falling notes are reminiscent of snow falling. Be certain that when both melodies play together near the end that both melodies are heard. They can be drowned out by the harmony and lower lines.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
