What Child Is This? sheet music for band instruments

This play-along band arrangement of What Child Is This? is in the key of concert A minor. Select a link below for a page with the printable PDF for your instrument. The arrangements are all in the same key so all woodwind and brass band instruments can play the song together. This carol has a wider intervalic range than most of the Christmas songs on this site, making it harder to arrange the music in a key that is easy for all instruments. Therefore, there are also a few alternate, easier versions of the carol for clarinet, trumpet, and alto saxophone. Visit the lead sheet page for What Child Is This? to find many more arrangements that might be easier for you to play. You can also find versions of the song which will allow you to play it with violin, viola, cello, bass, and recorder.

See the transposition page for explanations and charts to help you determine the appropriate key for each instrument.
