We have had requests for Christmas duets already this year and this would be the first in a series. Each collection will include three contrasting numbers. These arrangements are easy enough that experienced players could sight read them on the job. Each has a little twist to give it more interest than just parallel thirds. This collection includes duet parts and score for “O Holy Night” with a little “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring” mixed in for flavor, “O Christmas Tree” and as close to Mannheim Steamroller as two trumpets can do on “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”.
