    What Christmas drivel is everyone looking forward to performing again at their concerts this year?

    I could suggest a few for your band:
    1. We Three Trolls (featuring solos from Bbmad, Hobgoblin, and Red October)
    2. Jingle Trolls
    3. Trolls Roasting on an Open Fire
    4. The Little Troll Boy (featuring Bbmad as the apprentice troll)
    5. Bbmad the Red Nosed Troll
    6. The Twelve Trolls of Christmas (featuring the above-mentioned trolls using their multiple tMP accounts)
    7. Finale: Silent Troll (the most oxymoronic carol ever written)​

    Tickets available at the door: the audience will be spat at and abused at random points of the performance, and two or three lucky audience members will be singled out for particularly bilious abuse for no apparent reason whatsoever.

    I will attempt to see if I can get this thread back on track again!
    As it is my first Xmas in a brass band for years, I was surprised at the amount of Xmas music our MD has dished out that I hadn't heard before. Here goes....jingle bells forever, jingle bell fantasy, Berne patrol, Xmas eve Sarajevo, a Bandsman's Prayer, Santa' (as performed by Brighouse & Rastrick) and Xmas ditty (seasonal fun for band and audience)!
    Makes a change from all those flippin' carols :D

    Swiss Traditional arranged by Elgar Howarth (apparently)!

    Also another one I forgot 'the Huron carol' ........

    Brian Bowen wrote a fabulous arrangement of "I Saw Three Ships". I know second horn, it's a "flippin' carol" but I would encourage you to have a listen anyway :)

    that sounds suspiciously like a sea shanty
