  1. I’ve recently purchased the Phillip Kevern Christmas duet book, and it’s really quite lovely. His arrangement of Joy to the World features many different elements that make for a fun listening and playing experience.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions…..going to put them on my wish list for next year as I have already purchased the ones for this year. The Christmas Music one looks like it will work for me and the person I duet with at church…

  3. Love your ideas, but I wonder if you might be able to remind us of past holiday posts much earlier than December. We teachers are probably planning Christmas music and gifts in early fall.. I remember the Christmas gift ideas from last year, but posted too late both times. Maybe I just over looked the links this fall?

  4. My favorite Christmas Duet collection is Dennis Alexander’s Magic of Christmas. I haven’t seen books 1 and 2, but Book 3 is delightful with a variety of styles, and my duet partner and I have played most of them several times at retirement home or church events.

  5. I have really enjoyed the Persichetti Appalachian Christmas Carols. I have several adults that enjoyed sharing these with me.

  6. Hi! I realize I’m seeing this post years later, but I’m so curious, what are the pieces from each book that you played? Thanks!

    1. Over the past few years, I think we’ve played almost everything out of the books listed above! We have certain favorites, but we enjoy sight-reading lots of things and then creating a slightly different program of pieces each year. 🙂
