Gabriel's Message (The Basque Carol) for Piano

This traditional Christmas Carol is called either "Gabriel's Message", "The Angel Gabriel" or "The Basque Carol". It is thought that this Carol was one of the songs found by the French composer Charles Bordes (1863-1909) while researching traditional Basque music. He published several of these traditional songs, and some were translated and popularised elsewhere in Europe. This version has been arranged for piano or keyboard, and we also have a version arranged for guitar by Welsh guitarist Glenn Jarrett.

Here are a range of printable versions in PDF format suitable for a range of instruments: Main, High, Bass, Clar, Horn, Sax and Viola. Teachers and accompanists (on piano or guitar) can use this Accompaniment with their students.
