O Tannenbaum (Oh Christmas Tree) by Traditional. Arranged by Bill Dobbins. Clarinet Choir. For 3 Bb clarinets, Eb Alto clarinet, and 2 Bass Clarinets. Published by Advance Music (AV.8603).
This spirited traditional carol (Oh Christmas Tree) is taken on a musical voyage through several different tempos, keys and moods, including a Latin section with an optional shaker accompaniment. The chromatic harmonies and changes in tempo and meter provide challenging material that will help develop basic musicianship and interpretation. The music is not technically difficult, and should be well within the grasp of intermediate to advanced ensembles from high school to professional levels. Each instrument is featured in both solo and ensemble roles.
