I've arranged the Christmas Medley to be exceptionally versatile for your Christmas worship. At nearly six and a half minutes long, try using the Christmas Medley as a mini 3-song praise set to open a December Sunday or Christmas Eve service. No matter your style, the Christmas Medley will fit your congregation with parts for worship leaders, praise teams and easy SATB/SAB choirs. Here are some features:

One tempo: The entire Christmas Medley is 114BPM so set your click/multitracks and you're ready to go.

Male/female melody: The first two songs have men on melody with female harmony, the last song has female melody with male harmony. Lead the Christmas Medley with a male/female worship leader duo, praise team or the easy SATB/SAB choir parts.

Slice and dice: Use the first two upbeat songs only of the Christmas Medley to start your praise set and add your own popular Christmas worship ballads.

SATB+: As with all HymnCharts SATB+ arrangements, the Christmas Medley has soprano, alto, tenor and bass practice tracks to help your choir learn it faster.

Pop piano: In addition to the typical HymnCharts piano part (intended for rehearsal and to carry the arrangement whether you have a small praise band or just piano accompaniment), the Christmas Medley features pop piano-only sheet music. This is what I'd play in a full praise band - it's a less rhythmic, sparser part that allows the arrangement to breath better within the wall of sound (several guitars and synths) you'd usually hear in a megachurch.

   HYMNDEX Links
The modern worship lyrics trend for projection is to leave out most punctuation for a clean look. The original hymncharts lyrics text file contains punctuation. Our new website hymndex.com was created to help churches build hymn lyric slides without punctuation.
Instruments mp3s are the arrangements played one time through with just piano and instrumental parts to give you an idea of the orchestration. In the early days of hymncharts before I made vocal recordings I had created these instruments mp3s as a quick demo. Since I now create both a POP and an ORC (orchestrated) mix I no longer make instrumental mp3s for newer arrangements.
MP3 Problems?
Several subscribers have had problems downloading MP3s. Here are the 2 most typical problems and solutions:

1. How do I download the MP3s? MP3s and (if available) multitrack WAV downloads are found under the "tracks" tab. You can download these MP3s (or any files) to your computer by RIGHT clicking the button, then a little box will pop up with options. Select something like "save as"or "save link as" to manually save the MP3s to your computer where you can then burn a CD, email it to your praise team or upload it to a worship planning website.

2. The MP3 won't play in iTunes (or other media player.) All HymnCharts MP3s are free from ALL copy protection and can be used any way you want. Some people are clicking the MP3 button dragging it to iTunes or another media player. This won't work (you're actually just dragging the image file of the button!) Download the MP3 using the instructions above, then you can access it through your media player.
