2-part arrangements (1)

We often need more rehearsal time for a concert. An occasional 2-part arrangement saves a lot of rehearsal time and works well. The arrangements are invariably derived from the 4-part versions, and the accompaniments are the same.
Just published is a book of ten Christmas carols arranged in two parts (TB) and piano (see left).

You can click on the male voice music mini-scores in the left-hand column to view some pages of the score. A sample of male voice music in MP3 format is available for all of the songs - click on the loudspeaker icon in the right-hand column to hear it. If you wish to download it for playing on your own sound system, right click on it and choose "save target/link as...".
