Simple, Hymn-style Christmas Aug 9, 2009
If you are looking for simple, hymn-style Christmas songs at the beginner/easy level than this is a good book. I was looking for a little more embellishment but these are very straight-forward, with just the melody/harmony lines. Not very challenging at the intermediate/advanced level. Good for play-along with congregation if the hymnbook arrangement is in the same key. Maybe the title should be "My Very First Christmas". I returned this book and chose "Christmas Instrumental Solos, Carols & Traditional Classics" for cello instead that has both easy and more difficult (though not hard) songs with a bit more challenge. I also like the medley variations.
