Shepherds Swing! An arrangement of the well loved carol While Shepherds watched their flocks by night.

A walking jazz bass line, an original chorale melody, a swing version of the main tune, add a little improvised swing drum kit and you have Shepherds' Swing - a great item for Christmas concerts!

This arrangement is suitable for school orchestras bands and
ensembles. The arrangement allows for a great deal of flexibility in
presentation and will sound complete with as few as four players yet the scoring allows for expansion up to a full symphonic orchestra, concert band or brass band

As with all music available from Opus 3 Music this arrangement has been well tried and tested in performance.

to copy to suit your own requirements) for the following instruments:

Part 1 in C (Flute, Oboe 1, Violin 1)

Part 1 in Bb (Clarinet 1 in Bb, Trumpet/Cornet 1 in Bb)
