    Oh Holy Night , Adam/Wilkinson.

    Really nice, and popular with audiences.

    If you want something more up tempo (Am I really the only euph player who hates O Holy Night?!!) then try Good King Wenceslas by Roger Thorne - it's an air varie and you can try out the solo part for free.

    Thats the only other one I know of -there aren't many Christmas solos around.

    In the Salvation Army repertoire there is

    American Band Journal
    ----------------------
    Infant Holy (Robert Redhead)
    Ding Dong Merrily on High (Douglas Court)


    Other options
    -------------
    Babe In A Manager - Euph Duet (C Mallett)
    Lonely This Christmas - Euph Feature (D Barry)
    O Holy Night - Euph Solo (Darrol Barry) Not the usual one!! As mentioned by the composer himself earlier! :D

    Haven't played any of them (although Infant Holy rings a bell from many years ago)

    There's a nice arrangement of "Silent Night" by Barry Gott (publ. SP&S); originally a trombone solo, but I've heard it played on euph. occasionally. Needs a solid high register, though.

    Merry christmas Darling - by The Carpenters
    can't remember who published it but if you contact anybody at freck - www.freckletonband.co.uk - they will tell you as we played it a few years ago.
