Mel Bay Presents An Old English Christmas for Hammered Dulcimer

These 20 favorite English Christmas carols are arranged for a standard 15/14 hammered dulcimer but will easily transfer to the standard 12/11 instrument. Chord symbols have been provided to allow an accompaniment instrument and will also facilitate the player in adding further embellishments and/or variations to the tunes. The standard notation provided will help the player to learn the songs quickly; however, listening to the recording will prove to be an invaluable aid to the "by ear" player as well as to the player who wishes to gain new ideas for arrangements using additional instruments. In addition, lyrics are provided for the player who may wish to accompany a vocal arrangement. For the beginning to advanced player. (The CD with this book is not the same as the Green Hill "An Old English Christmas" CD - 97012CD.)
