This is a unique arrangement of The 12 Days of Christmas. Each instrument features in the piece - it can be very amusing for anyone playing a solo to stand up whilst they do so - you end up with various players bobbing up and down throughout the performance!

It is scored for 4 trumpets, horn, 2 trombones, tuba and keyboard/piano.
