Michael Clawson has created an exciting and interesting arrangement of the traditional English carol The First Noel. He uses Pachelbel's Canon in D as the basis of the piano accompaniment and then superimposes the traditonal melody of The First Noel. This piece is arranged for two-part voices with piano (two players) accompaniment.

A big hit with choir and audiences
For piano duet so need 2 pianists! One part is very quite easy so that person can be the conductor too!

It was what I wanted and expected. I didn't have to wait too long. This is not the first time that I have been pleased with the response. I will use this site again. (and again). Thank you.
I can't think of any bad points.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating This piece is clearly written and printed, and is easy to learn. There is scope for changing the instrumentation, for example adding violins or flutes, or even vocalising the third accompaniment stave. To get the full effect, it requires a minimum of three hands on the piano line.

Customer Rating Couple of things: arranged for TWO pianists, and you do kind of need both of them to make the pachelbel effect work well (although the primo part is mainly right hand only and could be played by a student of around grade 5/6 standard). It is a nice, if very simple arrangement for the voices. Obviously the carol's meter has been changed to common time and the melody slightly adapted to fit the canon's harmonies. I would have felt a little mean giving this 3 stars, so i think 4 stars are just about there, but would recommend it for maybe a year 8/9 choir (11/12 year olds), probably not enough there for older choirs.

Customer Rating Nice arrangement, although takes a bit of getting used to singing what is normally a 3/4 piece (The First Nowell) against a 4/4 piece, the Canon. The other thing to note is that the piano accomp is actually written for 4-hands, so it's really 2 voices & 2 pianists.
