This is the eighty-first in a series of arrangements composed/arr./trans. for use in Solo/Ensemble contests and will help fill the need for new material for competing middle school and high school players. Each of these ensembles are selected to show the very best qualities of your ensemble and through careful editing, each has a professional sound with only an average playing ability.

I imagine this would be how Dave Brubeck would have arranged it, if he ever needed to arrange a trumpet duet for Christmas. This is one you could ask your audience to sing along with but do not expect any followers.

From a performance point of view, the written accents must be played as indicated.

Listen to the example-
