The 22 Christmas tunes contained in this collection have been carefully arranged for any combination of string trio. The most standard instrumentation for voicing is violin, viola, and cello. However, three of the same instruments work well as do other groupings, given that the higher-pitched instrument plays the higher part. This three-part format follows a standard order: part 1 is melody, part 2 is harmony, and part 3 is a traditional bass line. Optional 8va markings are sometimes given to help the voicings sound better. The selections have been arranged in alphabetic order. The melodies, both sacred and secular, cover many centuries and originate in Western Europe and the United States. Each work is in the public domain and was selected for both its quality and musical interest. Arranged specifically for a chamber setting, the trios may be performed in a variety of venues from church services to holiday gatherings. Some repeats are marked in the music, but any selection may be repeated for the appropriate amount of music needed. Bowings have been added as suggestions, and some fingerings have been added to show the direction of shifts beyond first position. --Todd Parrish Orchestra Editor, Carl Fischer Music June 2021.
