God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen is a famous and popular Christmas carol. This arrangement is presented in two very different ways. One section is slow and mysterious with a steady tuba ostinato and cup muted trumpets above while the other section is an upbeat swing style with a walking bass line in the tuba with jazz harmonies and backgrounds in the other voices. Both trumpets and trombones get opportunities with melody in the swing section. This arrangement is for 4 trumpets, 4 horns, 3 trombones, baritone, tuba and optional percussion.
Arranged by David Marlatt
