Christmas Jubilee was written as a fun setting to teach percussionists various styles and percussion instrumental technique. This work is a collection of old traditional Christmas songs in a not so standard setting. These traditional songs include; Joy to the World, Deck the Halls, I Saw Three Ships, Go Tell It on The Mountain, and Jingle Bells. This was my first Christmas arrangement for percussion, written Thanksgiving weekend of 1986.
This is available for purchase as downloadable pdfs of the score and all parts and an mp3 file of the tune.
