Brass Quintet - Advanced Intermediate
Composed by Traditional. Arranged by Todd Marchand. Jazz, Swing, Christmas. 16 pages. Published by Con Spirito Music (S0.179991).

Item Number: S0.179991

The melody of “O Tannenbaum” (German - “fir tree”) is an old folk tune of uncertain origin, with lyrics written in 1824 by German organist, educator and composer Ernst Anschutz. It is not clear how the tune and text became so closely associated with Christmas, except that the custom of decorated fir trees at Christmas developed in Germany in the 15th–16th century.

This advanced-intermdiate level arrangement begins with a respectful statement of the tune in the traditional 3/4 meter, followed by a swinging treatment in 4/4, including a walking bass line, written solos, and a surprise or two in the “shout” chorus before recapitulating the opening statement. Suitablefor high school to professional ensembles for use in concert and recital. Full score and parts, 8.5x11-inch format.
