Based on the traditional God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, this samba treatment by arranger Paul Baker is just right. After a short chorale intro, the samba rhythm kicks in with either a cut-time or a bright-four groove. Written-out or improvised solos are provided for alto 1 and trombone 2, but cued for trombone 1, plus a drum and/or percussion solo. A nice shout chorus and an optional auxiliary percussion part complete this excellent arrangement. This chart will add some excitement to your holiday concert! Highly recommended! Optional expanded instrumentation.
