If you can afford only one “Up On The Housetop” for your brass quintet, this is the one to get. It is a hoot! It starts with an introduction that is definitely in a hurry; Santa’s sleigh may even have a klaxon on board to blast loitering birds out of the way! The arrangement moves on at the same fast clip, having fun with the melody and never letting up. As it reaches the halfway point, the tempo seems to slow down, but this is just an illusion; tuba and horn keep it moving. Racing toward the end, the conclusion recalls the introduction and finishes with a great, upbeat wind-up. Click on the “Listen” button, and get set for an exciting Christmas ride with Santa.

This arrangement was completed in 2012, and performance time runs about 1 minute, 41 seconds. The arranger, Les Smith, can be reached at For more arrangements by Les, direct your web browser to
