The seventeen Christmas songs in this volume, arranged in comfortable keys, can be used for players at different levels and for all kinds of occasions. All three editions (Violin, Viola, and Cello) include two parts for either solo or duet performance and piano accompaniment. The three books are all compatible so that ensembles may mix and match parts as desired. Suzuki groups may particularly enjoy these arrangements. The CD provides the piano accompaniments alone. It can be used for back-up, improvisatory play-along, or for pleasant listening by itself.
