About

This is an arrangement of 'The Holly and the Ivy' for grade 2-3 piano. The phrasing is very important - pay attention to the descending scales chasing each other between the two hands.

About The Holly and the Ivy

"The Holly and the Ivy" is a traditional British Christmas carol. Holly and ivy have been a mainstay of British Christmas decoration for church use since at least the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, when they were mentioned regularly in churchwardens’ accounts (Roud 2004). Holly and ivy also figure in the lyrics of the "Sans Day Carol". The music and most of the text was first published by Cecil Sharp. Sir Henry Walford Davies wrote a popular choral arrangement that is often performed at the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols and by choirs around the world.
