This is a fairly straightforward arrangement of a traditional French carol melody(adapted), that has been designed to give each instrument an interesting part to play with a number of different groups playing the melody and accompaniment. The last verse has a descant. An optional Piano/Keyboards part has been included in the parts but is not on the score. It should work well with a choir or congregational singing the traditional words. [I decided to arrange all the Christmas carols for my concert band after many years of playing the same-verse arrangement 4 or 5 times always with the flute, clarinet and trumpet having the melody!] Hope to upload my full collection soon. Any suggestions or comments welcome.

The MP3 was recorded with NotePerformer.
