Need some last-minute sheet music for Christmas services this weekend? Here are seven downloadable piano scores that are quick to prepare and will take you from Christmas through Epiphany.
Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow
My top-selling Christmas score for 2016, this bluesy arrangement of a beloved Christmas spiritual is easy to learn and fun to play. A real congregation pleaser! Available at Sheet Music Plus.
Infant Holy Lullaby
This sweet and gentle arrangement of two beautiful Polish carols, Lulajze Jezuniu (Lullaby, Jesus) and W Zlobie Lezy (Infant Holy, Infant Lowly), is perfect for meditative moments. Available at Sheet Music Plus.
What Child Is This
A reflective setting of a familiar carol that features a harmonic surprise at the end. Although it’s set in the key of E-flat minor (tip: just flat everything except F), it falls under the fingers easily. Available at Sheet Music Plus.
On Christmas Night with O Come, All Ye Faithful
This snappy medley of Sussex Carol and Adeste Fideles can liven up Christmas services. For less advanced players, this score may need a bit more practice than the first three on the list due to the upbeat tempo but it’s still quite accessible. Available at Sheet Music Plus.
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen with Sing We Now of Christmas
Another Christmas medley to spice up worship services, this one features God Rest You Merry and Noël Nouvelet. Again, less advanced players may need to budget a tad more practice time than the first three on the list due to the upbeat tempo and syncopations. Available at Sheet Music Plus.
Brightest and Best
Great for services that feature the wise men’s visit to the Christ child, this relaxed arrangement, of the traditional American hymn tune Star in the East is almost sight-readable. Available at Sheet Music Plus.
As With Gladness Men of Old with Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
Another arrangement for featuring the magi, this medley of hymn tunes Dix and Picardy starts simply, builds throughout, and is never difficult to play. Available at Sheet Music Plus.
Hope you find some useful scores here!
Wishing you a peaceful and blessed Christmas season filled with beautiful music. 🙂
