Lyrics
When blossoms flowered ‘mid the snows Upon a winter night
Was born the Child the Christmas Rose, The King of Love and Light
The angels sang, the shepherds sang, The grateful earth rejoiced
And at His blessed birth the stars Their exultation voiced.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Again the heart with rapture glows To greet the holy night
That gave the world its Christmas Rose, Its king of Love and Light
Let ev’ry voice acclaim His name, The grateful chorus swell
From paradise to earth He came That we with Him might dwell

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Carnival of Venice | Easy Piano Sheet Music for Kids

carnival-of-venice-piano

History
The Carnival of Venice melody is based on a popular German folk tune, “My hat, it has three corners.” In German it’s “Mein Hut, der hat drei Ecken.” The trumpet solo, mentioned earlier, is written in theme and variation form, including plenty of opportunities to play fast scales, arpeggios,  and double and triple tonguing. The Arban’s Conservatory Trumpet Method is the most celebrated solo, though cornet player Herbert L. Clark also wrote his own version. Chopin also jumped in with “Souvenir de Paganini”, and dedicated his version to the violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini.
