This is the first Christmas carol that I've put out for use by a brass choir that I'm involved in this holiday season. There are parts of this that may pose some difficuly (particularly the first trumpet variation for a few measures), but nothing is very difficult at all. Keep the middle section very laid back, but don't fall behind in tempo. Strong players on all parts is a must, and always boost the lead part up slightly in dynamic. Let me know if you'd like to perform this, or if you need anything "special" for your brass choir, and I'll do my best. Also, if you need parts, please . Thanks.

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.
