Part of a series of sacred arrangements by Catherine McMichael, Hymns of Advent is a collection of ancient hymns that dwell on the wonder and mystery of the Advent season. The first violin part tends to carry the melody line, while the second part (played either by another violin, or by viola or cello) harmonizes beautifully. The violin parts remain mostly in 1st through 3rd positions, making them easily sight-readable by more advanced players, as well as very accessible to intermediate players in general.
In addition to the two violin parts and the piano score, there are also two optional parts for viola and cello. These both double the 2nd violin part, though, and are meant to be used if a second violin is not available. Also, if desired (or if no piano is available), the written texture is such that the pieces may simply be played as duets without piano.
