Free Christmas Songs
Sing We Noel, Noel Nouvelet

Free Christmas songs in 3 formats: Here is sheet music for "Sing We Noel" (Noel Nouvelet) in Middle C position for young beginner pianists, as a lead sheet in 7 different keys for all instruments (chord symbols included), and as an easy piano arrangement for late Elementary piano in the keys of Dm and Em.




I found some truly lovely videos on Youtube.com of this beautiful Christmas song -- but the best were all sung in French. Here is the first and perhaps most mesmerizing performance of the song "Noël Nouvelet " performed by Ireland's National Choir, called "Anuna." 



And here is the late Elementary piano version of "Sing We Now of Christmas":

Though I have labeled these downloads "Key of Dm," "Key of Em," etc., this song, Noel Nouvelet, is not really minor. It is one of the church or ecclesiastical modes known as Dorian; that is, the notes of its scale correspond to what we find if we play white keys D-E-F-G-A-B-C-D on a piano. It is ALMOST a D minor scale, but with a raised sixth.

Below is the beginner's version of this free Christmas song. Note that although I am calling this a "Middle C" song, the student's thumbs must not be placed together on C. Rather, place them side-by-side, with left hand thumb on B, so that finger 5 can reach down to the low E.

I suggest playing Sing We Noel up an octave, or even 2 octaves. High piano notes, with a sustained pedal, have a very Christmasy feeling! Also, you can work up an accompaniment, using the chord symbols, and turn it into a duet.
