Come Little Children sheet music by Dogman15 Come Little Children sheet music by Dogman15
This is sheet music of (the vocal part of) "Come Little Children", specifically the version arranged by Kate Covington, which is used in the well-known "Children of the Night" animation, being done by Anima-dos. (I did not transcribe Kate's instrumental part, but I bet I could recreate it if I had access to a program like Cubase.)

Music is by James Horner, lyrics by Brock Walsh, or maybe John Debney or even Edgar Alan Poe. More info here: firstnightmarenight.blogspot.c…

Because that's the original title of the song. "Children of the Night" is just the name of the animation that uses that song.

Do you mind if I play this as a solo in my band class?

I don't think you need to ask that. It's not like you're copying the written work and claiming it as your own or selling it. And it's not even my song, just a transcription I made by hand.

Being a clarinet player, I just have to confirm tomething since I can't see the bars very well, but is the first note a C natural and the start of the Bb Concert Scale? (I must be precise. I cannot do this song without being precise....)

I wrote this for piano and most other "normal" instruments, and the song is in the key of C minor. So that's my answer.

Er, yes... The melody does repeat throughout the song, though the exact timing and rhythm of the notes varies from verse to verse. I think I tried to show that in my transcription here.

For the left hand, I just make up stuff based on the chords. If you need me to elaborate on that, I can, but I wrote the chords in.

Loving the help! I'm not trying to be bratty or snobby but, don't you think that the e after the c should be an e sharp? I tried it and it flowed more in my opinion. PS. omg I'm so glad I found this! Squeeeeee!

"E sharp" is F natural. This song is in C minor, the relative minor of E flat major, but that's irrelevant. I assume you're referring to the first measure of every line, where the notes are C-Eb-F-G. If I was to turn the E (which has to be flat) into an "e sharp", the song would sound completely different, and it would then be C-F-F-G. See the problem there?

I don't know what you're trying, or if you're on an instrument that trains its players to read music differently, but if you could re-explain what you mean, maybe I can address your concern more effectively. Until then, you're not making sense.

Where the voice break is how would you play that?
Reply

Dogman15 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2013
On the piano? You really can't, except maybe with a trill. With one's voice, it takes a slight yodeling talent to do it like Kate Covington did.

You might be able to emulate it with a woodwind or brass instrument.

Dogman15 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2013
I wrote it for piano, and I have a very strong preference for instruments that read (or can read) sheet music in the same way that a pianist can. Which is to say, most instruments. I don't know what instrument you prefer, but you're welcome to try to read this sheet music in a non-piano way. Yes.

Eh. Alternate staffing methods and capos on chords for guitar are just things that mess with my lifelong engrained knowledge of how to read music.

Ah-ha! Did NOT see that sharp the first time, lol.

I've been getting this to work for my Ocarina, and I was stumped for quite a while. Still, unlike the scarce others I've seen, this hits the mark. Thanks!

Dogman15 Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2013
Wait... sharp? Did you mean a natural? Since this song is C minor, there are three flats, no sharps, and on the third measure of every line, the Ab is naturalized.

:iconjetgrey:
JetGrey Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I think there is an accidental, actually - on the Fm chord "A". I played it a few times, and either I'm off-key on that note or it IS a B flat.

If I am wrong - entirely reasonable - just chalk it up to a little craziness. Still, thank you for writing this out!
Reply
:icondogman15:
Dogman15 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013
An "accidental" can be both a sharp and a flat, and in certain circumstances, the natural that neutralizes a sharp or flat. The "accidental ... on the Fm chord 'A'" is supposed to be there. C minor's three flats are B flat, E flat, and A flat. The A flat is supposed to be there, even though two measures ago it was an A natural. I just double checked everything I've written here by playing it on a piano again, and I think it might be possible that whatever instrument you're using could be out of key. Maybe. I mean, you said it first.

I am better at transcribing melodies, which tend to be played with the right hand. To give you left hand something to do, improvise based on the chords, or play the bass notes. Try alberti bass, if it's in 4/4 time, or an "oom-pah-pah" feel.

Or if you're feeling ambitious, try to hear the "melody" of the other instruments in the original song, and try to copy them on the piano or other instrument you're using. That's what cover artists do, I think.
