Christmas solos?

Discussion in 'The Rehearsal Room' started by stevecritchlow, Oct 25, 2008.

  1. Following on from the other Christmas music thread (from which I picked up a couple of excellent tips - thanks) can anyone recommend some good solo arrangements of Christmas pieces? Has anyone played Alan Fernies arrangement of In the bleak mid winter for tenor horn?
    Ta for now

    I don't play bass trombone.

    But I'll give Frosty a go any year.

  9. Now then Kidlington Dave, I was reliably informed you had a hatred of **** cheesy music and yet here you are in the public domain calling for Frosty to be played. It's in the libraary and it's staying there!

    Anyone know of a Christmas solo for glock , xylo of vibes? Not too difficult though, as we've lots of other work on. A nice plinky plonky one would do!

    There is **** cheese and there is awesome cheese. Some pieces are both. Frosty transcends mortal boundaries.

    The trombone solo arrangement of Silent Night is very nice, if a little high in places.
