Your students will enjoy this collection of 24 songs for Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving and Halloween. Included are familiar favorites as well as lesser known gems. These exciting new arrangements for two cellos include a melody cello part and an accompaniment cello part. Also included are twelve original mash-ups for two cellos violas. Ten of the melody lines extend briefly into fourth position. The accompanying part remains mainly in first position. but has some difficult passagework and chords. Simplified accompaniments have also been included for the more difficult ones. Cello students can use this book along with violin and viola students to play cello/violin and cello/viola duets, as the musical selections are in the same key. Each piece includes an historical introduction. This is a new approach to holiday music making.
