Masters In This Hall
Free Online Christmas Music

Masters in This Hall sounds like it is straight out of a Charles Dickens' Christmas story, and indeed, it does hale from England.

Here are four different arrangements, including an almost-beginner version that you can turn into a duet, with a partner to play chords in the bass!

Listen to an elegantly sung version of Masters in This Hall.  Very nicely executed, Veritas Concert Choir from Newberg, Oregon performs "Masters In This Hall":



Here is a closeup of the first arrangement:

One of my daughters made the following arrangement as a teenager. 

This energetic one-chord arrangement has an irresistible drive that makes it fun to play and sing.

Here is a closeup of that one-page arrangement:

With its unchanging chord, the music has something of the flavor of the Middle Ages. 

No, this particular Christmas arrangement does not have an easy treble part.  In fact it is a bit of a challenge, for beginners!

You will have to play through it carefully as a teacher and decide what fingering would work best for your student.

I favor contracting the right hand and placing the 5 finger on the C at measure 16, because that works nicely for ME.  

However, your student may do better with picking up the hand and re-placing the finger, or (horrors) they may cross over several times.  

Be prepared for that!  I always tell them that the best fingering for their piano music is usually the most efficient, with the minimum of changes.  

Now here is the version for beginners.  It does have some ledger line notes... Oh no!  

Well, think of it as an OPPORTUNITY to stretch them a bit, just in time for Christmas:

A closeup look:

The timing is doubled for beginners.  I like to count this as "1-2, 1, 1-2, 1, 1-2-3, 1-2-3"  instead of with six beats.  "Unit counting," instead of "band counting," is what we call it at my studio.

Lastly, the following arrangement is just like the one at the top of the page, but with single notes in the right hand, instead of little chord shapes.
