This is a very exciting, modern arrangement of the traditional Christmas carol. It moves through a variety of styles, including mambo, baroque and swing, and is great fun to play and to listen to.

A recent program note stated: "Here we play Austin Ralphson’s delightfully jazzy �God Rest Ye Merrier Gentlemen� for brass quintet, beginning as the solemn original hymn which quickly morphs from style to style, including mambo, fugue, swing, big band jazz and 20th century experimental. It’s an arrangement even a scrooge would love!"
