These 25 traditional Christmas Carols are in a beautiful new edition, arranged by Dave McKeown, a fully qualified and highly experienced teacher and performer. This collection offers something refreshing and different from the most commonly sung and played carols which are available elsewhere from my homepage. There are familiar melodies amongst the less well-known; ’Child in the Manger’ goes to the music of ’Morning Has Broken’, and ’English Country Gardens’ provides the melody for ’Christmas is Coming’.

This collection includes

  • simple melody
  • full lyrics in English
  • chord symbols for guitar, keyboard or piano accompaniment.

Here are the carols included in this collection

  • As Joseph and Mary
  • Bring a Torch Jeanette, Isabelle
  • Carol of the Bells
  • The Birds
  • Child in the Manger
  • Christmas is Coming
  • Go Tell it on the Mountain
  • Good Saint Nich�las
  • Huron Carol
  • Hush, Hush, Hush
  • I Wonder as I Wander
  • Il est N�
  • King Herod and the Cock
  • Masters in this Hall
  • O Christmas Tree
  • Rocking Carol
  • Sans Day Carol
  • Shepherds, Shake off your Drowsy Sleep
  • Song of the Crib
  • Sussex Carol
  • Twelve Days of Christmas
  • Unto Us a Boy is Born
  • Wexford Carol
  • Zither Carol
  • A-Wassail, A-Wassail

There are versions available for most other woodwind, brass and string instruments, and these are all compatible keywise. So if you are organising the music for a carol concert in school, church or home, whatever instruments you buy for, the music will be in the correct key. The chosen keys are also within comfortable singing range.

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

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

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.
