Merry Marimba Christmas
Holiday Favorites Arranged for Barred Percussion
By Doug Edwards
14 pages
Grades 3 - 6

Take one part Christmas spirit, one part barred percussion and a healthy scoop of compositional creativity and you haveĀ a Merry Marimba Christmas! This is a collection of instrumental arrangements of traditional Christmas carols forĀ barred instruments. Use them to add a bit of sparkle to your holiday program or to create smiling faces in your general music classes this winter. Teaching tips and performance options are provided. You can download free audio tracks (for listening purposes) and video performances with the purchase of this book.

Arrangements are for soprano, alto, tenor and bass marimbas. The one exception is "Away in a Manger," which is written specifically for metallophones and glockenspiels, with the possible inclusion of marimbas and xylophones. Arrangements are for diatonic instruments except for one arrangement that uses an accidental - a high F#.
