Clarinet 2 in Bb part from Christmas Serenade for clarinet choir by David Wheatley

A pot-pourri of popular Christmas tunes

5 minutes
Modern classical music

This Christmas ’pot-pourri’ was a request from a local clarinet choir - who currently are short of players. So it has been score for a minimum of 5 players - which can either be 4xBb, Alto and Bass OR 5xBb plus Bass. Additional parts are available for an extra Bb and Eb clarinet, which will enrich the performance. An Mp3 file is available to listen to. Audiences will love trying to count the various Christmas songs - bit tricky as sometimes 2 can be playing at the same time. The choir director will definitely need a score as there are numerous speed and key changes. The score is a transposed score - i.e. shows notes actually in the printed parts. 2 Optional percussion parts are also available.

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.
