play THE MUSIC

Stick a bit of tinsel on your music stand and join in on recorders, flutes, oboes, ukuleles, violins, trumpet...and more!

This year we have rewritten our sheet music to make it more accessible to everyone, so less experienced players won't have so many sharps and flats to worry about. The music here is like a massive Christmas Carol kit - use any of our word sheets, instrumental parts, mp3s or broadcasts and they are all compatible - in the right keys, with the same harmonies and the correct rhythms! Download what you need - we only ask that you respect our copyright and don't use any of the materials for commercial gain.

Further down this page, you'll also find the piano part for our official theme 'Carols on the Doorstep' by George Rink, aged 12 - why not have a go and post a video on our Facebook page?
