    Hello everyone!

    I have been looking for some middle-high school Christmas choir music that has a duet part for lower intermediate players. The womens choir we would play with can be either SA or SSA.

    Another option could be a piano/harp duet played on two harps. That could get tricky though.:/
    Thank you!

    You may like to find some inspiration in “Yuletide Treasure: Celtic & English Music for Winter Celebration, Harp Solos and Duets arranged by Deborah Friou & Julia Lane (Friou Music).

    You could order it here:
    or (free shipment worldwide) and probably in lots of other shops.

    Contents of the 94-pages book:
    Harp Solos:
    The Abbot’s Bromley Horn Dance; Green Grow’th the Holly; Lullabies for the Christ Child; Nos Galan (Deck the Halls); The Humors of Winter; Gloucestershire Wassail; Christmas Day in the Morning; Greensleeves; That Night in Bethlehem; The Holly and the Ivy/Sans Day Carol; Down in Yon Forest

    Harp Solos or Duets:
    I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In; Three Sea Captains; When Christ Was Born; The Wexford Carol; Rorate; Coventry Carol; ‘is Winter Now; Cold and Raw; New Christmas

    Duets of 2 Harps or Harp and Melody Instrument:
    I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In; Three Sea Captains; The Wexford Carol; Rorate; Conventry Carol; ‘Tis Winter Now; Cold and Raw; New Christmass

    Duets for 2 Harps only (no “melody instrument”):
    When Christ Was Born; Down in Yon Forest; Soalin’/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; Nos Galan (Deck the Halls)

    Duets for Harp and Melody Instrument only (no second harp):
    When Christ Was Born

    You may like to use these pieces to find compatible pieces for women’s choir. Perhaps you will have to transpose some of the pieces to make them fit between the women’s choir parts

    There’s a piece by Daniel Pinkham called COMPANY AT THE CRESCHE(SP?) which is scored for three part treble voices, handbells, and harp. The harp part could be doubled or divided up between 2 players. It consists of 6 or 7 short movements. If you don’t have handbells, it could be played on glockenspiel or celeste. The publisher would be E.C. Schirmer.
