Carol of the Bells
arr. Paul Clark
- C L Barnhouse Company
Take a familiar holiday classic, give it to a creative arranger, and you get a hard-driving rock chart that's filled with instrumental and dynamic contrasts. After an attention-grabbing introduction, a few bars of the melody are played quietly in 3/4. Then it's straight-ahead rock in 4/4! The open solo section for any instrument has only two chords, and the chart works fine even if the solo section is omitted. The trumpets never leave the staff, and it's playable with optional limited instrumentation. It's the perfect "something different" for holiday concerts!
