Ye Merry GentsTraditional / arr. David Marlatt and Ryan Meeboer Jazz Ensemble Conductor Score & Parts Level: Easy Item: 81-JB115
"God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" is a famous and popular Christmas carol. This arrangement is presented in two very different ways. One section is slow and mysterious with a steady low voice ostinato and muted trumpets above, while the other section is an upbeat swing with a walking bass line with cool harmonies and backgrounds. Trumpets, saxes, and trombones all get opportunities with the melody in the swing section.
