Your Favorite Christmas Hymns and Carols for Wind Instruments Book 2
Arranged by Colin Kirkpatrick

This essential collection may be all you ever need for your wind instruments at Christmas. It's a bargain price too! The arrangements are intended either as stand-alone pieces that could be used as interludes in a service, or they could be used to accompany solo, choral or congregational singing.

The publication consists of a four-staff score in concert pitch together with fourteen separate parts in various transpositions. There is also a fairly easy optional keyboard part. These four-part arrangements use flexible instrumentation so that you can exercise considerable control over the instrumental voicing. You can also create interesting instrumental tone color by omitting groups of instruments. This can be achieved with the aid of a pencil. If the ensemble is large enough you could omit brass instruments in the quieter sections, or use a solo trumpet against a woodwind background. There are endless possibilities. You can hear the effect of omitting sections in the audio samples. The arrangements could therefore be played by brass quartet, woodwind quartet, saxophone quartet or virtually any combination of wind instruments. Using the piano part (which has been kept as simple as possible) the arrangements could also be used as solos or duets, depending of what instruments are available. Parts 1 and 2 in C have been printed an octave higher than the pitch shown in the score because the parts invariably are too low for flute or oboe. All the scores and parts are contained in a single 140-page PDF file.

The publication consists of four-stave scores for each hymn and carol plus:

1.    Part 1 in B flat (clarinet, trumpet, cornet, soprano sax);

2.    Part 1 in C (8ve higher for piccolo, flute, oboe);

3.    Part 1 in E flat (alto saxophone, E flat clarinet);

4.    Part 2 in B flat (clarinet, trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn);

5.    Part 2 in C (8ve higher for flute, oboe);

6.    Part 2 in E flat (alto saxophone);

7.    Part 3 in B flat (tenor saxophone, B flat baritone);

8.    Part 3 in C (bass clef for trombone, bassoon);

9.    Part 3 in E flat (E flat tenor horn, alto saxophone, alto clarinet);

10.    Part 3 in F (French horn in F);

11.    Part 3a in B flat (8ve below score pitch for 3rd clarinet);

12.    Part 4 in B flat (B flat bass clarinet, B flat bass);

13.    Part 4 in C (bass clef for trombone, bass trombone, bassoon, tuba);

14.    Part 4 in E flat (E flat baritone saxophone, E flat bass)
