Here are 30 easy-to-play Christmas favorites arranged for tin whistle (also known as pennywhistle) and Irish flute. Chords are included for guitar, keyboard, or other accompaniment instrument.

Also included with this book:

  • Access to audio downloads for all 30 songs, with tin whistle, Irish flute and guitar
  • Three duet arrangements

If you don’t read music, you can still use this book! In addition to music notation, there is a specially-designed tablature for tin whistle and Irish flute.

What makes these tune arrangements easy?

  • They are played in the lower two octaves of the whistle and flute’s range, ascending no higher than B in the second octave.
  • They are in easy tin whistle and Irish flute keys: D major, G major, E minor and B minor. No metal keys are needed on the Irish flute.
  • They use only eight notes: D, E, F, G, A, B, C and C.
  • They are also easy to play on soprano and tenor recorder, modern flute and piccolo.

The author recommends using a tin whistle in D or a standard Irish flute (with or without keys) with this book. You can also use soprano and tenor recorders, modern flute and piccolo. However, the tablature in this book uses only tin whistle and Irish flute fingerings.
