An exciting arrangement of eight popular Christmas carols arranged for solo Tuba & Piano; in an up-beat and somewhat jazzy manner. This challenging set of carols, offers Tubists and low brass players in general, something very different for those Christmas concerts and recitals, give them a go, and I am sure that you won’t be disapointed!

Treble clef Eb & Bb parts are available on request via e-mail. HAVE FUN!

• The Tuba part is all written out with jazz inflections and articulation included.

• The Piano part is all written out, but also includes the jazz chords for players who wish to "comp".

• These Carols are playable by moderately advanced performers and are perfect for parties, church services, "busking" & recitals.

• Range is very moderate, nothing high!
