O Come Emmanuel gospel Christmas song lyrics and chords and tabs sheet music

Here is a very beautiful Christmas arrangement:  O Come O Come Emmanuel sheet music for intermediate piano students, with basic piano chords and a lovely harp-like interlude.  My daughter arranged this music, and the interlude is indeed based on a harp rendition by Kim Robertson in her CD "Celtic Christmas":

On the pdf (but not on the graphic) I make the suggestion in the first line of the Emmanuel song to ROLL the chords so they sound like a harp.  

I really do play the solid chords this way, all through the piece (not in the middle interlude section).  You decide how you like them - I confess I have a fondness for playing chords this way, depending on the mood of the music.

Don't forget to play up an octave on the repeat!  Also, please note the frequent clef changes in the left hand throughout the interlude.

The left hand is mostly just basic piano chords, but the right hand has many chord inversions.  Watch out!  Kids need exposure  and lots of practice to handle these. 

Seven measures from the end, I have placed a caesura right at the end of the interlude, at the fermatas.  (It failed to appear on the graphic, though!)

A caesura means to break - to take a breath and start afresh.  Sometimes called "railroad tracks", the caesura is notated by 2 diagonal lines.

Here is the lead sheet version of O Come Emmanuel, in several keys:

Best Christmas Music

With autistic students, I have also observed the curved under pinkie finger and reluctance to use it at all. Fingering and hand position seems to be my biggest challenge (along with counting) though he mimics rhythms well.

He gets aggravated with me in my trying to review as he seldom forgets anything. This year he is doing much better at taking correction from me.

He is a fascinating young man (of 9) and I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of teaching him and his precious presence on my piano bench.

I look forward to your continued insight.

Louise:

I just wanted to say thank you so very much for your free printable sheet music. I am a piano teacher from the UK who has recently moved to a very remote location in Australia!

I found little to no decent music for my children to learn anywhere close by anyway and this website has been more than helpful as I've scoured around looking for resources. Just wanted to share my thanks! Blessings to you.
