These special arrangements for percussion ensemble, featuring traditional carols and modern seasonal favorites fully arranged for 8-12 players, have become standards for Christmas programs throughout the country. The full compliment of keyboard instruments, as well as timpani and percussion, are used in each arrangement. The parts are moderately difficult. All of these works are featured on the CD recording Christmas Bells, Mallets, and Drums performed by the University of Oklahoma Percussion Ensemble.

About the OU Percussion Press
In 1977 the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensemble embarked on a project that developed into a national model for the encouragement and development of new music for percussion ensemble. The OU Percussion Ensemble Commissioning Series regularly engages outstanding composers to write works for this medium. The Commissioning Series is responsible for the creation of some of today's staples in the percussion ensemble repertoire.

In 1983 the University of Oklahoma funded the establishment of the OU Percussion Press, a non-profit extension of the percussion area. Through the Percussion Press, the commissioning series compositions plus other works expressly written for the OU Percussion Orchestra and Ensembles have been made available for purchase and performance by the world's leading percussion ensembles. The Percussion Press' catalog numbers more than 50 works, all published in a non-profit venture as a service to the profession.
