Merry Merry Christmas
Merry Merry Christmas singing round is a quick learn, with several points to recommend it!
- The lyrics are unbeatable for simplicity.
- There are lots of repeated notes.
- It's written in the key of C - no pesky sharps or flats for unsuspecting vocalists who are pianistically challenged.
- Oh, and it's pretty, too!

* Listen to an audio of the melody *
Though I sang this song as a child, I have been unable to discover it anywhere on the internet, either as sheet music or as a video!
If anyone has a clue who the author is, let me know... otherwise I will assume it is public domain (or perhaps my own elementary school music teacher, Mr. Chase, composed it! He was a talented older man).
Easy to learn - tricky to combine with others!
This little round will work best with a GROUP of singers on each part, rather than just one person on each line.
The notes are very easy, especially since there's so much repetition, but there's something about that leap of a sixth in line two that can throw a vocalist off track. Like most rounds, the singers benefit from some supporting voices.
