Looking for an innovative way to incorporate your instrumentalists into your Christmas worship services? Lillenas' Creative Carols series is just for you! It includes arrangements of ten of your favorite Christmas carols for eight different soloists (flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, french Horn, trombone, violin and cello) and five carols for three different small ensembles (woodwind trio, brass quartet and string quartet.) These traditional carols are arranged in fresh popular styles, with rhythm section or piano accompaniment. You'll find quiet introspective treatments, energetic pop, swing tunes and Cuban grooves. All of these pieces can be accompanied by piano, rhythm section, or recorded rhythm tracks. Make Creative Carols part of yourChristmas repertoire this year, and for years to come. The printed book includes the solo parts. A CD-ROM is included with the book and has printable PDF files with solo/piano scores, rhythm/piano parts for "live" accompaniment, stereo accompaniment tracks, and stereo demonstration tracks to help your players get the songs prepared.
