Oh Holy Night Sheet Music
Piano Music for Beginners

Oh Holy Night sheet music for elementary piano - now with a Secondo part for a full-sounding duet!

The melody works out very nicely when shared between the two hands, thumbs side-by-side; the span is only from F below Middle C to A above Middle C. (If you are looking for a more challenging version, visit this page.)


The key of F is really too low for young kids to sing along with as they play (which is the ideal, I believe), but they can still sing many of the phrases.  For performing as a duet, this arrangement will of course sound more beautiful with the melody played an octave higher than written.

I chose this key because it makes the accidental from B flat to B natural very easy to play.  I'd rather have the left hand 2 negotiating that change, than a thumb going from C to C sharp, for example, as would be the case in the key of G.

Sorry about the timing!  I know 6/8 is not going to LOOK as easy as your students might wish - but don't worry - they'll catch on quickly, especially if you sing the words.

In the more difficult version for solo piano (and also vocal duet), there is an additional measure after measure 9.  I decided to leave it out for younger players, as it doesn't feel that natural, and most people find the shorter pause easier.

This version looks like it would made a great duet - where's the Secondo?

Here it is!  It is 2 pages long.
