Through the centuries, the Christmas season has inspired composers, poets, lyricists, and hymn writers to apply their craft in devotion to this event. This book presents 100 arrangements of favorite Christmas carols and advent hymns for violin solo with guitar accompaniment. Suggested chordal accompaniment is included for each solo so that any chordal instrument can accompany the violin. The author has also indicated whether the guitarist should use fingerstyle or strum accompaniment. The music in this book spans centuries and represents a wonderful assortment of solos which may be used as preludes or offertories throughout the various seasons in the church year.

This book works for me. I am a little more advanced than a beginner at the violin. Some of the sections of the songs are too advanced for me but if I stick to part A and B I’m usually able to play it. I really like this book. It’s something I can learn from and continue to play when I become more experienced.
