The Holly and the Ivy
The Holly and the Ivy is arranged for four guitars. The range goes to high E, first string, twelfth fret. The ensemble is written at the advanced level due to the extended range and intermediate rhythms. Guitar 1 should be able to play in tenth position. Ideal for Year Three/Four, Quarter Two.
Notice: Because most holiday music is performed in the months of November and December, the skill classifications for holiday music are compromised slightly to fall into Quarter Two. The pieces may be a little easy or a bit challenging for your ensemble due to this compromise.
