Christmas Suite

Christmas Suite, these where written over a few years.  It started with God rest you merry, I wanted to do variations which would be fun for to play to my pupils and eventually for them to learn.  I also turned it into a game by mixing the names up and playing the pieces at the pub and other events and asking people from a list of names to put them in order.

Bethlehams Little Town is one from 2014 Christmas and is my latest piece. Bethlehems Little Town
