Trumpet Quartet - Christmas Music


Jolly Old St. Nicholas - $4.00

Here is a theme and variations version of Jolly Old St. Nicholas for 4 trumpets. Easy to play and easy to listen to. The mood is smooth, subdued and relaxed throughout, with a light swing section at the end.

A perfect piece for beginning groups, but professionals will appreciate it's beauty and simplicity. The first trumpet part might be a bit tiring (see the sample sheet below), but that is too keep the fourth voice playable. even now, now there are still a few low 'G's (concert F) in the 4th part that can't be heard on the computer playback.

To me, this piece sounds both plaintive and wistful, and is a nice contrast to other 'friskier' Christmas numbers.
