Carol Stringfest presents popular carols in flexible arrangements for string quartet, beginner strings and duet. The books in the series can be used independently or in conjunction with one another. The inclusion of very simple parts for absolute beginners and an optional piano accompaniment, to support less confident groups, makes the series valuable to a wide range of abilities. Lyrics are also provided, so there is something for everyone, a must for Christmas!
The Holly and the Ivy
Deck the Hall with Boughs of Holly
Once in Royal David's City
Away in a Manger
Quem Pastores Laudavere
Good King Wenceslas
O Christmas Tree (O Tannenbaum)
Good Christians all Rejoice (In Dulci Jubilo)
Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
We Wish You a Merry Christmas

series, by renowned educationalist Paul Harris, is designed to help you
overcome all your sight-reading problems, especially in the context of
graded exams. Step by step you build up a complete picture of each

specific technical issues, then by studying prepared pieces with
associated questions, and finally ‘going solo’ with a series of
meticulously graded sight-reading pieces.
