Once In Royal David's City by Traditional. Arranged by Ralph Carmichael. For jazz ensemble. Kenton's Merry Christmas Series; The Stan Kenton Orchestra Library Series. Christmas. Grade 4-5. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-609).
The 1961 Capitol Records recording of Christmas music was a smash hit for Kenton. It contained arrangements by Kenton and (mostly) Ralph Carmichael of traditional Christmas music. This particular arrangement is very much in the brass tradition, but it has very hip harmonies and lines. The original arrangements were written for 4 trumpets, 4 mellophoniums, 4 trombones, tuba, keyboard, bass, drums and auxiliary percussion. These are the charts we sell, but we've also included saxophone parts which take the place of the mellophonium parts. They work quite well. From Kenton's Merry Christmas recording.
