Christmas fiddlers can draw on a rich and varied repertoire. This collection spans seven centuries, from the boisterous medieval Song of the Ass to contemporary tunes like Sleigh ride, taking in such traditional carols as Away in a manger and O little town of Bethlehem along the way. There is music in The Christmas Fiddler from England, Wales, France, Germany and North America.
  
Of course Christmas time is not only a religious festival. Much of the music here - the Welsh carol Deck the hall, the "fireside" movement from The Four Seaons, the modern classic Chestnuts roasting on an open fire - is as much a celebration of the ancient secular festival of the Winter Solstice.
 
The arrangements in this collection can be performed as solos or duets, or by larger ensembles. This is the violin edition (with an optional easy violin part and guitar chords); for the complete edition, which also includes both keyboard and violin accompaniments, see below. Either format is hugely flexible, which means the music can be played as solos, duets or trios as well as with larger ensembles.
