Seeking a new arrangement of The First Noel (organ+strings+voices)
  • At my work church, we have been using the Willcocks arrangements of the carols sung at Christmas Eve services (it's Anglican, so of course :-) I have never been partial to Sir David's setting of "The First Noel", and we sing all the verses (of course!). Has anyone created a version for organ and strings with only one or two alternative harmonizations? Or can recommend one? I am trying to save myself recreating a wheel, as I know there are plenty of talented composers/arrangers here!

    Here are string parts.
  • Francis, the file downloads, but then will not open (it keeps saying that it is an invalid file). I'm using a Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7 Home Premium. I've tried twice but cannot seem to get it to work.

    The file is affected by the usual bug about attachments (see the "sticky" thread about attachments for an explanation), so I repaired it and put a copy on my web server.
