The Twelve Days of Christmas


Categories: ,


The aim of this arrangement was to include as many instrumentalists within the school as possible for the final item on our Christmas Concert. This explains why the already large orchestral line-up is augmented by lead guitar, bass guitar and drum kit. The sample page of score shows just how large the resources are and the guitar parts are given in both standard notation and tab.

The choir and audience sang along and the roof was veritably raised, forming a fitting and memorable climax to the concert for all!

The score is, unfortunately, in rather a small font but the numbers of each verse have been inserted as a guide for the conductor, in case (s)he loses count (or forgets the words!!)

Because of the length of the piece, instrumental parts are spread over two pages and each section is given opportunity to take the lead but, of course, careful counting is essential.
