Experienced highland bagpiper Matt Willis has created a collection of 22 favorite Christmas and holiday songs with unique harmony parts for all of the tunes. This book also contains a CD with all the melodies and harmonies played on the highland pipes by Matt Willis.

An extra feature of this book is the inclusion of guitar chords for the tunes. There are also instructions on how to bring either a guitar into tune with a highland bagpipe or a bagpipe into tune with concert-pitched instruments, like a piano or guitar.

“O Come, O Come Emmanuel” and “O Come All Ye Faithful” are included with four-part harmony, and “What Child Is This?” is included with three=part harmony.

The included CD features every tune in the book and is especially useful to hear all of these tunes played with their harmonies. The melody is panned to one speaker and the harmony is panned to the other to allow you to listen to each part separately as well as together.

With one-part harmony:
Angels We Have Heard on High
Auld Lang Syne
Away in a Manger
The First Noël
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Good King Wenceslas
Hark! the Herald Angels Sing
Here We Come A-Wassailling
