Shchedryk

world-famous Ukrainian folk/Christmas song

Arranged for solo piano by Kent D. Smith

UPDATE NOV. 21, 2022: This sheet music download now includes a second, optional copy, just like the first, only this one has CHORD SYMBOLS added!

Shchedryk is an extremely popular Ukrainian folk melody which is often associated with Christmas around the world.

Quick notes re copyright:

There happens to be a copyrighted title and lyric that is also associated with this Ukrainian folk melody, which is a popular Christmas carol. It’s technically against copyright law–and principles–for me to use the title of this carol here, or to publish the lyrics, on this sheet music, without acquiring legal copyright permission.

That said…

This exclusive arrangement, for sale here, is based on the original music, Shchedryk, by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych, which was composed in 1914.  This music by Leontovych is in the “public domain” –meaning, no current copyrights apply.

*Please note, any original arrangement of a public-domain work, such as this arrangement for solo piano, has its own copyright, belonging to the arranger (me, in this case). I know. It’s complicated!

This version can be sung along with as well, using the famous carol words, as this arrangement follows the familiar structure of the carol.

SKILL/READING LEVEL:

Easy-to-Medium difficulty.

How to make this one even easier to play:

One potentially challenging (but optional) thing for some smaller hands might be the occasional octaves in this arrangement.  (An OCTAVE being two notes of the same name, say “E,” but just seven scale-steps up (the E right “next door”), or seven scale-steps down, from each other.) BUT:

*THE GOOD NEWS IS, you don’t have to play any of these octaves here: You can always just choose the lower ‘E’ in this example, or the higher ‘E’. The full octaves sound cool and all, but if you just catch whatever notes of these pairs that you can–the piece will still sound good!
