Your intermediate clarinet quartet will enjoy performing this cheery setting of a Christmas-time classic. This short, fun arrangement is designed for use on holiday-themed concerts and recitals, but could also be used as an in-class chamber music assessment tool, as it contains a variety of dynamics and articulations to enhance the spirit of the music. Most importantly, there are challenges for every member of the ensemble.
Although the arrangement is intended for intermediate players, it can be used on gigs as an “easy reader” for more advanced groups.
NOTE: This arrangement comes in two optional keys: Concert F Major or optional E-flat Major, which avoids some of the trickier break-crossings in the primary key.
