Score & Parts
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen is a famous and popular Christmas carol. This arrangement, for 6 trumpets, is presented in two very different ways. One section is slow and mysterious with a steady ostinato and cup muted trumpets above while the other section is an upbeat swing style with a walking bass line in the lowest part with jazz harmonies and backgrounds in the other voices. Several player get opportunities with melody in the swing section.
