James Welburn’s playing tips:

Get creative with your C major scales (practise ascending/descending, dotted rhythms, triplets). Keep your touch light throughout, particularly on the staccato notes, which will help to give shape and definition to some of the quicker passages (e.g. bar 22). To bring out the LH octaves in bars 51-55, move seamlessly from light and bouncy to heavy and accented, reaching a powerful climax at the forte marking and finishing with a bang!

This arrangement of Ding Dong Merrily on High, from composer James Welburn, features in his latest book, Star of
Wonder: Christmas Carols for the Piano Lounge
(published by Editions Musica Ferrum).
