q Another Free Christmas Solo/Duet for Strings: Ding, Dong Merrily on High! - C. Harvey Publications

Liven Up Your Christmas Practice!

Make the Christmas season special with another free Christmas Solo/Duet for strings! Ding, Dong Merrily on High is written in the style of the music in The Violin Advent BookThe Viola Advent Book, and The Cello Advent Book so you can see how the books work. 

These days, even small tasks can be complicated!

Recording sample tracks from the new Advent books these past few weeks required a sense of humor! Baby Lilya was absolutely determined to be heard in the outtake below… 

< 1x

Having heard Joy to the World quite a lot by now, she even gets a little rhythmic in the middle of the video. 

Let’s just say that it wasn’t the most efficient session… 

But we finally managed to get a couple of (mostly) clean takes to put on the product pages; hooray!

And despite the challenges, we are loving having baby Lilya in rehearsals, planning sessions, some lessons, and even a performance or two!

We are happy, however, 

that we got all of the actual recording done for this Christmas violin and cello CD before the baby was born. It’s a little surreal that in all of the craziness of this past year that a second duo CD release was possible.

Note: We encourage you to purchase and review the album on Amazon
(rather than here on the website) because reviews really help!

There is a lot of excitement about these new Advent books!

Flexiblecompatible between instruments, and fun, these books give students and musicians material to play each day of the Christmas Advent season! 

First, the Warm-Up helps you work on the difficulties in the carol and variation. 

Then the Carol Melody is followed by a Variation on the Carol.

The Duet part can be played with either the Melody or the Variation. (Please note: it is not recommended to play the Melody along with the Variation).
