So I'm playing a tenor solo in church for Christmas, but all the sheet music I have found is extremely simple and quarter notes. I'm a sophomore in high school but am fairly advanced. Does anyone know where to get more advanced sheet music for a Christmas performance? Thank you!

Welcome to SoTW!

For a more traditional offering, google Great Carols by Curnow or Messiah at Christmas by Leonard. They have play-along CDs or you can purchase piano accompaniment. Should be a couple arrangements in either book that will give you a bit more of a challenge.

Good luck & cheers!

I have The Big Book of Christmas Songs which covers a fair range of Christmas music. You could look at it. I don't remember what I paid, but the price on the book is $14.95 for 175 + songs.

Best of luck with it.

Most traditional Christmas music is 'simple'.
Remember, it's not how many notes in the piece that make it 'difficult' or 'challenging', but how you approach it musically.
Dynamics, phrasing, the 'emotion' you put in to the performance is far more important than how many black dots you have before you on the page.
Simple gifts from the heart are far more meaningful than the grandiose. :)
