A fun jazzy arrangement of a holiday classic. This arrangement was originally written for cello ensemble and vocalist, but the vocal part can be played by any upper-register instrument as a substitute. The recording below features trumpet in place of the vocal part, playing in the written octave. Other potential substitutions could include clarinet, saxophone, violin, or even a cello soloist.

While this arrangement isn’t particularly difficult at a glance, note that the rhythms will be challenging in context. It’s crucial that the group is able to “feel” the swing rhythms in order to pull this one off – listen to the recording if anyone struggles initially. Written slurs and articulations will help the swing¬†feel. The pizzicato parts should be played strongly, making the cello sound like an acoustic jazz bass.
