Looking for Christmas Music

November 15, 2017, 2:42 PM · Hello, all!

I'm on the hunt for some Christmas music that has an alto, baritone, and violin part. Am I asking for too much? :) Church appropriate, please, as we'll be performing this during an LDS sacrament meeting.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Edited: November 15, 2017, 9:14 PM · I'm not familiar with the LDS hymnal, but I know the Catholic Book of Worship and Gather contain many advent/Christmas tunes with parts already arranged in 3/4 part harmony with accompaniment.

Maybe ask your church organist if you can borrow the accompanists copy of for a day and make some copies. The perk to this is that those in attendance may already be familiar with the arrangements. From there you can play a vocal line or, as Mary Ellen recommended, the right hand of the piano.
