The Christmas Clarinet Duet Book features twenty five of the most popular songs, arranged for two clarinets. Each duet is written specifically for the clarinet with beginner and intermediate students in mind. Ten of the songs are all in the lower register, and fifteen are in both the upper and lower registers. Scroll down for a complete list of the carols, as well as samples of the duets.
The Christmas Clarinet Duet Book has 55 arrangements of 25 songs, with at least two versions of each song -- one with the melody entirely in the top line of the parts, and one with the melody traded back and forth between the two clarinet parts.
The appendix includes four extra carols for more advanced players: two more arrangements of Jingle Bells, and arrangements of O Christmas Tree and Silent Night.
Visit the main clarinet Christmas music page for free printable sheet music of the solo parts for each of these carols.
