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!
Hopefully this might provide a seasonal duet for a teacher and talented student!
