Take a look at the above music and you will see that there are no repeating melody lines in the verse or chorus.

 The words to the Carol O Come All Ye Faithful was originally written in Latin (Adeste Fideles) and was intended to be a hymn of the 18th Century, which it is, but has also come to be one of our beloved Christmas Carols about our Lord. The Englich translation by Rev. Frederick Oakley (1802-1880).

Norman and other readers are asking for Mariah Carey's arrangement to this song. I haven't been able to find it, so if anyone has worked on the chords, please let me know.

Since I receive lots of emails requesting Christmas songs, I''ll try and post one daily, especially since to day is December 1st!

To help prepare your piano playing to improve around the holidays, you will want to research these two Christmas Dvds that I recommend from Jermaine Griggs and Yoke Wong:
