Swingle Bells X (SBS-13) (Anon.) (Level 2) SSAATTBB, bass and drums. Includes "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," "Twas in the Moon of Wintertime," and "Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella." "Swingle Bells X" was commissioned by the Mid-America Singers and I have added it to the already existing "Swingle Bells" medleys. This one mixes Latin, Huron and French carols. I was surprised by how easily they fit together!

Swingle Bells VI (SBS-6) (Trad.) (Level 3) SSAATTBB, synth, bass and drums. "Les anges dans nos campagnes" should have a careful "fusion" of classical and jazz styles.

"The Holly and the Ivy" is in a "pop" style with a baritone solo. I chose "Jingle Bells" to end what I planned as the last medley because the first medley begins with "Jingle Bells."

(Trad.) (Level 3) SSAATTBB, synth, bass and drums. The Norwegian carol "O Jul med din Glede" has "bouree" rhythms contrasted with a light, jazz feeling. "Komt, Verwondert u hier Menson" (Dutch) has a "pop" style with even 8th notes. "Away in a Manger" is done as a bass solo with string-like accompaniment.

(Moore/Swingle) (Level 3) SATB and Brass Quintet. This setting of Moore's famous poem was originally written for the Swingle Singers and the Canadian Brass. So that my singing group could perform this work in their own concerts, I transcribed the original version into a version for two SATB choirs. One choir sings the melodic setting of Moore's poem while the other gorup sings brief quotations from various carols. The original version has been recorded by the Canadian Brass and the Elmer Iseler Singers on their "Christmas Album."

We Three Kings (8 Brass, 5 Saxes) - Commissioned by the Boulevard Big Band and the Dream Factory, Kansas City, for their 1991 Christmas CD, this arrangement takes the original traditional Christmas song and reharmonizes the entire tune, with an alternating signature of 4/4 and 3/4 for added interest.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel - PDF Download,<em> by Eric Richards</em> The Wassail Song - PDF Download  SATB 16 copies,<em> by Jason Heald</em> Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella - PDF Download - SATB with Bass,<em> by Jason Heald</em>
O Come, O Come Emmanuel (8 Brass) (Level 4) A contemporary "concert piece" setting of the familiar Christmas carol intended to feature either wind synthesizer or soprano saxophone (written on Reed I). This piece also requires keyboard synthesizer. The piece opens with an ethereal statement of the hymn by wind synthesizer and keyboard. This statement leads into a "GRP"-style funk groove for the improvisation, which is followed by a fugue for the brass section and a majestic finale featuring the entire group. The symphonic nature of this arrangement requires a fairly mature ensemble comfortable in both jazz and classical idioms.

(Level IV) The Gift Within This original power-ballad Christmas song states that “the greatest gift is within our heart”. Hemiola is used throughout the piece for emphasis and contrast. This two-against-three feel creates intricate rhythmic patterns. This is a “feel-good” chart that builds to a dramatic finish. Scored for solo, TTBB and piano.

(Level IV) Carol of the Bells This is a fast-paced and ominous arrangement of the familiar tune and works well as a closer to a concert. An eighth-note motive gives a sense of urgency as the vocal lines weave around each other. This arrangement features an intricate scat section built around a rhythmic sequence. The melody soon returns over a new harmonic structure which builds to an exciting finish. TTBB w/ Piano

O Holy Night As sung by Eclipse on “It’s Christmas Time” Tight, lush harmonies abound in this contemporary setting of O Holy Night. The build is ever so steady to the last verse and peaks as a mosaic of rhythms and notes suddenly lock together in a tutti section with wide-spread, powerful voicings. A soloist with great emotional grasp is a must. (6-part male) TTBBB A Cappella w/Lead vocal
I Saw Three Ships,<em> by A. Patrick Rose</em> Come All Ye Faithful,<em> by A. Patrick Rose</em> Do You Hear What I Hear?,<em> by A. Patrick Rose</em>

I Saw Three Ships As sung by Eclipse on “It’s Christmas Time” Great opener. Starts big right out of the gate and provides an energized, contemporary pop take on this Christmas classic. Lots of catchy rhythms and inner parts culminate in a quasi-Pop/Gospel style ending. The lead line can be performed by a soloist, multiple soloists trading verses, or a section of the choir. Originally intended to be accompanied with vocal percussion, but drum set or percussion would work great also along with bass guitar doubling or replacing the bass part. (5-part male with improvised) Voc. Perc. TTBB A Capella w/Lead vocal

Come All Ye Faithful As sung by Eclipse on “It’s Christmas Time” Written in a Pop/House-Beat style arrangement, a groovin’ choir is a must. The parts bounce between rhythmic synth-style chunk chords and flowing choral lines. The lead line can be performed by a soloist, multiple soloists trading verses, or a section of the choir. Originally intended to be accompanied with vocal percussion, but drum set or percussion would work great also along with bass guitar doubling or replacing the bass part. (5-part male with improvised Voc. Perc.) TTBB A Cappella w/Lead vocal

Do You Hear What I Hear? As sung by Eclipse on “It’s Christmas Time” A strong rhythmic motif provides the backbone for this contemporary pop style version of the Christmas classic. Flowing, harmonized lines provide counter to heavy, alliterated ostinato rhythms providing a very catchy setting to the Lead line and lyrics. The lead line can be performed by a soloist, multiple soloists trading verses, or a section of the choir. Originally intended to be accompanied with vocal percussion, but drum set or percussion would work great also along with bass guitar doubling or replacing the bass part. (5-part male with improvised Voc. Perc.) . TTBB A Cappella w/Lead vocal
Christmas as a Child,<em> by A. Patrick Rose</em> Hodie Christus Natus Est,<em> by David von Kampen</em> Some Children See Him,<em>by Ron Soderwall</em>

(Level IV) Christmas as a Child As sung by Eclipse on “It’s Christmas Time” A relaxed Christmas ballad featuring contemporary pop styling and backing parts that are sculpted to paint tonal images around the lead line. The lead line can be performed by a soloist, multiple soloists trading verses, or a section of the choir. Originally intended to be accompanied with vocal percussion, but drum set or percussion would work great also along with bass guitar doubling or replacing the bass part. Would also work well without percussion at all. (5-part male with opt. improvised Voc. Perc.) . TTBB A Cappella w/Lead Vocal


(8 Brass) (Level 4) was written in 2012 for the University of Kansas Jazz Ensemble I, under the direction of Dan Gailey. This chart is based on the anonymous Gregorian Chant for Christmas Day. The lyrical melody is set over a straight-8ths groove, and slowly builds throughout the chart. Features a guitar solo.
