Product Description

This set includes three arrangements of Christmas songs: I Saw Three Ships, Stll, Still, Still and God Loves Me Truly.

I Saw Three Ships is an English Carol with a bouncy melody that may refer to the camels - ships of the desert - the traditional three magi rode into Bethlehem. Still, Still, Still is lovely little Austrian lullaby. God Loves Me Dearly is an old German tune often associated with children that was originally written in 3/4 time but appears here as a bluegrass swing.

From time to time, all brass groups get asked to play at a community gathering, shopping mall, open house, or something similar, and this could be a handy source of some material to play.
