Tab – Ho’onani I Ka Makua Mau (The Doxology)

Merry Christmas!

Here is a simple arrangement of the beautiful song Ho’onani I Ka Makua Mau. I created it using a piece of sheet music that I received from Aunty Darci for choir class at the Kahumoku ‘Ohana workshop.

Tune ‘ukulele: low-GCEA

Ho’onani I Ka Makua Mau tab

The sheet shows mostly four note chords arranged for the four choir groups: soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. Since the ‘ukulele is so limited as far as bass notes go, I could only tab some of the tenor notes.

I decided to follow the timing on the sheet music even though some of the measures have too few notes. The notes with fermatas in the 3,5,7,and9 measures should be counted as about a whole note.

If you haven’t heard the song before, there is a video on Youtube that has the music and words:
