        We have only just started to rehearse the piece, but it looks as though it is going to be fun.
        Nothing has emerged at present.

        The children in my school really enjoy this piece. It's not too difficult and they do actions to the chorus !

        Perfect for my mixed choir of varying musical abilities. Definitely lightens the mood of choir practice! Hopefully the congregation will enjoy this upbeat version of the Holy & The Ivy too when we sing it!

        Junior choirs will love this lively piece, which has a very effective canon in the chorus.

        I love this arrangement of The Holly and the Ivy. It is so cheerful and great fun to listen to. I have never sung it but am hoping to this Christmas!

        This was a request from my grandson - he wanted to learn the harmonies for Christmas. Arrived promptly and well in time. Many thanks.

        This is such a clever version of this Carol and works on many levels. You can have the chorus in a three part canon with descant, or just in canon, with three parts or with two. If your choir isn't up to that you can just have the single melody line. Great tune and fun accompaniment, always enjoyable!
