Noël X, Grand jeu et Duo ~ is one from a collection of variations on traditional French Christmas songs by Louis-Claude Daquin. In those days and time, the word Noël had come to mean Christmas itself– a word originally signifying a round-dance in Old French and Middle English. This Noël X is notable in its simplicity which opens the musical door to a variety of developments and variations. Maintaining the style and form of the Noël, Fred has adroitly interwoven three other holiday favorites ~ Angels We Have Heard on High, Good King Wenceslas, and Ding Dong Merrily On High – so seamlessly, it may take a moment to realize you are hearing a new melody! It is Rung throughout but the perfect placement of a few  malleted notes, LV, TD and Sk, add to the sparkle on this delightful, musical tree. 

 You will love having this fabulous, fresh arrangement in your Christmas and holiday repertoire.
