    An little march on the famous Jingle Bells. The words and music were written in 1857 by James Pierpont for a Thanksgiving program at his church in Boston. It was so well received that the children were asked to repeat it at Christmas. It has been a Christmas song ever since.

    that is pretty amazingly done.

    you should be proud of that because its hard to do stuff like christmas music and for it not to disappear into the rest of the cheesy arrangements out there.

    hats off to you :clap:

    Fantastic! It sounds amazing and everyone has something good to play...I know that it's not really a requirement when writing music, but it's nice to keep everyone happy :D

    A review from by David Payn....

    Jingle all the way !

    "Jacob has made an exellent brass band arrangement of Jingle Bells here with enough originality to mark it out from usual brass band festive arrangements, including some sumptuous close harmony writing. Highly recommendedand playable by (in my opinion) anything from a good 4th section band and upwards. Well done!"

    Yeah it's really good, BUT, maybe it is the 1/4 Yorkshire man coming out in me, but $44 and you have to then print it out and staple it all together yourself. Call me a meanie :) but for £25 most music comes in a padded envelope with a nice score and everything.

    Well.. Then send me 25 £ and I´ll send you a nicely printet, stabled together version in a padded envelope..

    Just make sure you buy your licence from the council if you want to play it. :)

    An outstanding march - well recieved by audiences.I would recommend anyone looking for a march with a Christmas feel - that is not too cheesy - to invest in this great piece. The City of Birmingham Brass Band is enjoying playing the Christmas Cracker...

    Hi everyone... I would very much like to have a recording of the March Jingle Bells with a real brass band and not those silly midi sounds... Did any of the bands who purchased the piece at Sibelius Music have a concert recording ???? Just PM me or send an e-mail.... :) :)

    Thank you in advance....
