A Tubular Christmas
Christmas Songs from Around the World Arranged for Boomwhackers
By Ellen Foncannon
Book and CD
9 Christmas songs from around the world (including one original piece), for use with Boomwhackers tuned percussion tubes. The Boomwhacker arrangements are chordal accompaniments and/or melody parts to play along with the carols. Each song includes a full score showing piano accompaniment, Boomwhacker, and lyrics lines; an Instrumental page with the Boomwhacker parts only; an EZ Instrumental arrangement using simple, one- to three-note chords; and lyrics pages (unison, or optional parts). An accompaniment CD is also included. The notes needed and the number of players needed are given at the beginning of each song for the Instrumental and complete score pages. Instrumental, EZ, and Lyrics pages are copy-permissible as needed for the purchaser's group.
Boomwhackers needed (Boomwhacker and Octavator sets are each available separately): diatonic short set (item 200346) and bass diatonic set (item 200347); alternately, use 2 short diatonic sets, with one of each duplicate tube being lowered an octave with an Octavator tube cap (item 200403). The option is also given to use chromatic boomwhackers (item 200348) to play larger chords.
