According to Wikipedia: ‘Jingle Bells is one of the best-known and commonly sung winter songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpoint (1822–1893) and published under the title One Horse Open Sleigh in the autumn of 1857. Even though it is commonly thought of as a Christmas song, it was actually written and sung for Thanksgiving. It was mistakenly branded as a Christmas song because being extremely popular at Thanksgiving, it was sung again around Christmas’.

Although I’m not especially into Christmas festivities as such, having made a couple of other seasonal arrangements, it seemed only right to provide one for Jingle Bells, especially as there is no issue with regards copyright.

As before, I have included a number of versions for various instrumental combinations, and all of which are slightly different, both to accommodate the different number of performers involved, or the ranges of the instruments used.

If you’d like a specific part for any other instrument, just let me know and I’ll be happy to oblige, if possible!

STOP PRESS: Following a request from Karyn Weber, founder of Clarinet Fusion - a Clarinet Choir from the San Francisco Bay Area - I have now added two independent parts for Contra Alto Clarinet in Eb, and Contrabass Clarinet in Bb - which their contra player, Mark Horne, has kindly produced and edited.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
