Introducing the third volume of Christmas choral arrangements under the Hymnplicity Ward Choir brand: Hymnplicity Christmas – Book 3 – #01353.
Here we have renamed the former Ten Minute Anthems – vol. 1 to correspond collectively with the other choral arrangements in this easy-to-perform format.
Unlike the original two Hymnplicity Christmas volumes, this volume contains traditional Christmas carols not found in the 1985 LDS Hymnal, such as “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” Still Still Still,” and “What Child is This.”
The Hymnplicity Ward Choir series was created to provide wholesome choral arrangements for a beginning choir or a choir with limited time and/or budget. Only two copies of the book are needed—one for the pianist and one for the conductor—while the choir members sing out of their hymnals. The conductor leads the choir members through piano interludes and key changes not written in their part.
Pages in the back of each book, which may be legally photocopied and given to each choir member, instruct them on words and parts. In this particular volume, the back pages contain both words and music to each carol (as they would appear in a traditional hymnal format).
