Why JINGLE BELLS SURPRISE! ? Hidden in this arrangement and brief quotations from other well-known Christmas songs… but what are they? This piece has been arranged for 2 Descant Recorders and Tenor Recorder. It has been performed to great acclaim and is popular with both players and audiences. I hope you enjoy it!

In response to requests an additional version of the Tenor Recorder part (Part 3) has been added in the Bass Clef.

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

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

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.
