A rock-jazz adaptation of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by a wonderful new arranger, Mike Smukal, this holiday chart is at a medium tempo that's a breeze to rehearse. Plenty of ensemble playing, modest brass ranges, clear articulation, no improvised solos, and a little counterpoint mixed with a rock beat assures you'll have the hit of the holiday concert. (2:40).
