Barnett-Christmas by the Numbers (SP)-P/4T/2M/B/C/V - Product Information

Christmas by the Numbers arranged by Keith Barnett is a medley of three seasonal tunes, namely, The First Noel, We Three Kings and The Twelve Days of Christmas. Barnett takes the melodic content from all three songs and overlaps them to form a new kind of holiday composition. This arrangement involves some role play, as the performers pretend to not be able to find up-beat pulse. Planned miss-entrances of melodic motives will have your audience enjoying the performance of this new take on three holiday classics.

A Real Crowd Pleaser!

Comments:

This arrangement really works. The mallet parts require two-mallet technique and all parts are be accessible for high school ensembles. The only reason for the rating of "4" is because the score and parts are handwritten, making them a little difficult to decipher. (But my copy is now 15+ years old, so a newer edition might be engraved now). I pull this piece out about every 3 to 4 years, and it is always well-received. Have fun!
