Score and parts

Genre: BRASS ENSEMBLES

This short volume is a new edition of classic Christmas tunes arranged for brass quintet. The arrangements are simple, reminiscent of hymnal treatments, but more inventive, dividing the quintet into trios, duos, etc. The highest note in the first trumpet part of one of the arrangements is b-flat2, making these pieces accessible to high school students and amateur performers. These arrangements are suitable for seasonal performing/gigging, etc.
