Sheet Music


The music below can all be read with Sibelius Scorch, a simple plugin for your Internet browser that allows playing, saving, and printing of Sibelius music files by non-Sibelius owners. (Note that saving and printing may be disallowed by the file creator; however, mine may all be saved and printed.) Each of these I wrote out myself, either from listening to the original song and writing a version more or less close to the actual music, or by composing or arranging the songs myself.

Description

Gaudete

myself

This is an arrangement of the medieval carol for SSAA with both soprano and alto solo parts.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

PDF

myself

This is a choral piece, SATB. I arranged it during the school year of 2002-2003, I believe. In fall of 2008 I re-arranged the same piece for TTBB, pdf here.

Patapan

PDF

myself

This is an arrangement of the traditional carol for soprano recorder and piano.

Coventry Carol

PDF

Anúna

This one is as done by the Irish choir Anúna, written out from listening to the music. As best as I can tell, it was SSAA, so that's how I wrote it.

St. Nicholas

PDF

Anúna

I wrote this interesting choral piece from listening to it being done by the Irish choir Anúna. Unusual for most choral pieces, this one has three female and two male parts. I wrote it as SSATB, but it could just as easily be SAATB, as the middle female part is neither too high nor too low for either 2nd soprano or 1st alto. (The first part, however, is definitely for high sopranos only.)

Crescent Noon

Carpenters

This song is incredibly lovely, one of the more quiet and reflective pieces the Carpenters did. Richard wrote it, and Karen sang it, with her timeless voice. It requires a low alto solo. The words can also be found here.

He Came Here For Me

PDF

Carpenters

This is one of the most beautiful Christmas pieces I've ever heard. Karen's voice soars over it so lovely it tugs at you. I wrote a piano accompaniment for it based off of the synthesized accompaniment I could hear on the track. It requires a low alto solo. The words can also be found here.

Intermission

PDF

Carpenters

The Carpenters liked to goof around too. This silly little "choral" piece was written approximately for SATB (though the soprano part may be too low for most sopranos, given that Karen did both female parts).

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (instrumental)

PDF

David Nevue

This is an instrumental arrangement of the traditional carol, arranged by David Nevue for piano.

Watermark

PDF

Enya

This is the sheet music to Enya's beautiful piano song Watermark. This one is very simple and excellent for a person who does not play the piano regularly, who reads music slowly but well.

Chant

PDF

Michelle Tumes

This is a lovely choral-style piece that Michelle Tumes did by layering her own voice over other voices. It was originally done in SATB, but I also have a version I arranged into a prayer response style for SSAA, pdf here.

Mr. Simon

PDF

Ken Medema

This was written out from a Pat Taylor recording of Ken Medema's classic retelling of the story of the Pharisee and the publican. It is designed for a medium-to-low female vocal.

Avinu Malkenu

PDF

unknown

This song is taken from the soundtrack to The Last Butterfly (1991). I do not know who composed the piece originally. It is a choral piece, arranged for SSA.

Shchedryk

PDF

unknown

This is an SATB arrangement of the traditional Ukrainian New Year's Carol called Shchedryk, which we know today as Carol of the Bells. I have lost track of the original recording where I first heard this, and do not know who the arranger was or what choir sang it. Audio tracks for individual parts can be found here: Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass.
