Other and Jazz music

This is an easily attainable, fun addition to your holiday concert that puts a swingin’ spin on the traditional Christmas standard. It can be prepared in just a few rehearsals, and is a great way to practice simple 8th note swing. Optional parts have been included to fit your instrumentation. The alto clarinet part may be played on a 3rd B-flat soprano instead. An E-flat contra alto clarinet part is included and can be used in place of the B-flat contrabass clarinet part. The ensemble also sounds fine without either the contra alto or contrabass part as well.

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, 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 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.
