A collection of melodies from well-known carols and songs from the Christmas period set to a Brazilian inspired groove. The medley of music is put together based on the ‘musical switch’ format (quickly changing from one theme to the next) for a beginner ensemble. For 8 to 12 players (4 additional percussion parts) any, none or all of theses optional parts can be added depending on your circumstances and the availability of instruments/players and for more performance possibilities Bb and Eb versions of the Melody and Harmony parts are included arranged for the novice performer.
