Various Composers - Alfred Music Publishing
Christmas for Two continues the tradition of flexible, easily prepared vocal duets with eight beloved carols, folk songs and folk hymns, arranged for two equal voices. With lyrics on sacred Christmas texts, these duets are perfect for performance throughout the season in both concerts and worship settings. Formal structures such as canons, echo songs and partner songs encourage melodic independence and the musical growth of each singer. Modest vocal ranges and accessible keys make these duets a great choice for a variety of combinations, including unchanged treble voices, women's or men's voices in pairs, or a male/female duet. Many of the arrangements offer optional obbligato lines for flute, C-instrument and trumpet. Reproducible instrumental parts are included right in the book! It's an invaluable collection of easily-learned selections for the busy December season.
