John O'Reilly has arranged the classic Christmas hit for beginning bands in a very special way. Sleigh bells, triangle, and tom tom establish the processional style that is further enhanced by low brass and woodwind open fifths. Upper woodwinds get the first pass at playing this famous melody but trumpets, horns, and low brass also get to be featured as this delightful arrangement progresses. (2:10) Correlates to Book 1, page 18.
