Trios are very popular at Christmas time and for that reason I put together three of our all-time favorites- Silent Night, The Little Drummer Boy and It Came Upon A Midnight Clear.

Silent Night is in the form of a Theme with three Variation and if you can’t recognize the melody, it’s because I didn’t use it in the first and second variation.

Each of the three players performs the melody at different times and each will enjoy the honor.

As you can see this is a long medley (7:20 minutes) and can be performed as a continuous grouping or broken into three separate songs. It was not possible to upload all of the Demo recording because of its length so I have less than half for you to listen to.


Listen to the example-
