A lively arrangement of the 1998 festive Cyndi Lauper hit in a Calypso style, involving syncopation and a fun shouted chorus with which the whole audience can join in!

This arrangement is designed for any group of four bass clef instruments of which the lowest can reach C2 in concert pitch, e.g.:

3 trombones, bass trombone
3 trombones, tuba
2 trombones, euphonium, tuba
4 bassoons
4 cellos
3 cellos, double bass
Mixed ensembles

The 1st part is mostly within the octave F3-F4, with some limited extension downwards to C3.
The 2nd part is mostly within the octave D3-D4, with some limited extension downwards to A2.
The 3rd part is mostly within the octave Bb2-Bb3, with some limited extension downwards to F2.
The 4th part is mostly within the octave C2-C3, with some optional extension downwards to F1 (which can be transposed up an octave if necessary).

After a bright introduction, the verse and chorus melody is shared between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd parts, with the 4th providing a rhythmic and harmonic bass. Different rhythmic and dynamic textures provide contrast, before an original coda section offers a slightly greater challenge with rhythmically more independent parts - great for extending the skills of your ensemble! A final reprise of the chorus wraps up the piece.

This arrangement is a 2018 Holiday Contest Entry.
