Item Number: H0.1136543-SC001275146

An arrangement of the enchanting song from the 1965 Christmas television special "A Charlie Brown Christmas"; a piece of music that induces much nostalgia in the generation who grew up with it in the 1960's and 1970's. Performance duration is about 3 minutes 30 seconds, and a performance can be viewed at

After a gentle 8 bar introduction the arrangement begins with a statement of the original melody but with some embellishments to make the arrangement more pianistic. As the piece continues most of the original harmonic changes of the song are retained, but in places quite decorative keyboard writing is used, where the suggested fingerings should help. The arrangement concludes with a simple reprise of the opening of the song in bars 57-69.

    The chording and phrasing of this arrangement just chokes me up. The song must 50 years old by now but still touches me deeply.
