The Little Drummer Boy
By Katherine K. Davis, Henry Onorati and Harry Simeone / arr. Melody Bober
A wider range of the keyboard is used in this arrangement through the use of 8va and the damper pedal. Written in G major, this piece features a rhythmic ostinato in the left-hand accompaniment and harmonic thirds, fourths, fifths, and sixths in the right-hand melody. The use of D. S. al Fine creates a longer version and allows for an interlude before the return to the sign. The lyrics are included.
