Holly and the Ivy
This 76-measure work pairs a lively rendition of “The Holly and the Ivy” with a more lyrical setting of “Joseph Dearest, Joseph Mine” that may be played on handchimes. The tempo stays the same throughout, and the final setting combines both melodies for an exciting conclusion. The techniques included are malleting, shakes, and thumb damps. This rendition of the familiar Christmas carol is set in F Major and is 76 measures.
