It’s the Christmas holiday season, and musicians throughout Christendom get ready to serenade congregations in churches, shoppers in malls, and party goers at festive receptions. Here is Volume II, with 18 more of the best known carols for the Christmas season arranged for string orchestra.

  • NOTE: For "O Little Town of Bethlehem" (British Version), "Silent Night", and "Up on the House Top", the string bass part is obligatory, as it is sufficiently different from the cello part. All other pieces may be played without string bass if necessary.

A Further note: These same carols have also been arranged for brass quintet. Volume I for Brass Quintet is located at: www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?scoreid=115708&storeid=452 Volume II for Brass Quintet is located at: www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?scoreid=115709&storeid=452 SOME share the same key and may be played together as a mass ensemble; however, SOME have been arranged in DIFFERENT keys to better suit the instruments for which they were arranged (flat keys for brass, sharps for string).

Volume I for String Orchestra is located at: www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?scoreid=115888&storeid=452
