A brand new and somewhat quirky arrangement of the well-known Christmas Carol. The Trombone and Tuba are given a fair crack of the whip, rather than it being left up to the trumpets all the time!

At letter D the music slips into a Jazz Waltz style and it is important to swing the quavers to gt the full effect, which produces some interesting results. and at letter F, we find ourselves creating a little Hocket, with fragments of the tune passed around the enemble - but without it losing any of its cohesion.

At letter G the music returns (almost) to normal. and this reprise leads to the end.

Please pay attention to all te articulations and slurs, which are very specific to create the effects.

If you are bored with the traditional setting s, then this is for you.

Parts supplied:

Trumpet/Cornet 1 Trumpet/Cornet 2 Horn in F/Eb Trombone/Euphonium/Baritone (Bass/Treble) Tuba/Eb Bass (Bass/Treble)

Christmas Interlude: This is a medley for brass quintet/wind quintet/String Quintet/String Orchestra of three Christmas carols. Past 3 O'Clock, The Gloucestershire Wassail and Greensleeves. It is intended to be played by most standards of ensemble. All three carols are given my usual slightly quirky treatement and Past 3 O'Clock is used as a linking idea between the carols and as a coda at the end.

A great new addition to your Christmas repertoire.

A brand new arrangement of this well-loved carol. I think this is a more 'vanilla' arrangement than my other quirky ones. Everyone gets a shot at the tune and there is a little bit of optional choreography in the middle with some echo effects.

This would make a nice addition to any Christmas programme, either religious or not.

Parts supplied are:

Trumpet/Cornet 1

Trumpet/Cornet 2

Horn in F/Eb

Trombone/Euphonium/Baritone (Bass/Treble clefs)

Tuba/Eb Bass (Bass/Treble clefs)

This is probably Sean Connery's least favourite carol! This is a brand new arrangement of the well-known carol for 2018. The trumpets don't always have the tune, in fact the horn starts in its high range after the intro, followed by the trombone. By the 3rd iteration of the tune I decided to change key and to begin to incorporate other tunes. It's not really a medley, though. The obbligato parts are all original. The two other tunes you might spot are "In Dulci Jbilo" and "O Come All Ye Faithful"

Parts are supplied as follows:

Trumpet/Cornet 1 Trumpet/Cornet 2 Horn in F/Eb Trombone (Bass/Treble clef) Tuba/Eb Bass (Bass/Treble clef)
