Ten popular traditional carols for junior brass quintet - "Ding Dong Merrily on High", "While Shepherds Watched", "O Little Town of Bethlehem", "In Dulce Jubilo", "Good King Wenceslas", "The Holly and the Ivy", "I Saw Three Ships", "Away in a Manger", "In the Bleak Midwinter" and finally "We Wish you a Merry Christmas".

I have tried to provide melodic material throughout the group, and some opportunities for a rest.

As an extra bit of fun for players and performers, the final carol features an additional verse and coda section.

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.
