provides a snapshot of all the unfortunate events taking

place, such as wooden soldiers who break rank and fight

to defective reindeer harnesses that accidentally come

with cowbells. But in the end, Leon realizes that his work

is important and that being a Christmas elf has its rewards.

Perfect to feature an administrator or teacher as narrator.

Simply delightful!

rendition of The Wassail Song (Here We Come A-Caroling)

and a slightly “fiddle-ized” version of Angels We Have Heard

on High. The hornpipe The Rights of Man is then cleverly

String Orchestra

WINTER SOLSTICE—Todd Parrish. This fresh,

new work describes the wonder and adventure of the

winter season. All sections alternate between both

melody and accompaniment throughout, while staying

mainly in first position. The viola part is particularly

interesting with important accompanying ostinati. You

will enjoy adding this lively piece to your winter, holiday

concert or festival repertoire.

10092412 String Orchestra..................47.00

TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS, THE—Ben

Clinesmith. A fresh approach for the holidays that’s

seasonal fun! Wonderfully creative, this setting allows

every section an opportunity to be featured with solo

“verses,” some in surprisingly creative presentations. It’s

the perfect way to get everyone their own time in the

spotlight and have fun doing it! The holidays have never

sounded so musical!

10274107 String Orchestra..................50.00

CHRISTMAS EVE/SARAJEVO 12/24—arr. Bob

Phillips. As seen in the mind-boggling “Trans-Siberian

Orchestra” stage show, this thought-provoking medley of

Christmas tunes describes a lone cellist playing Christmas

carols in the midst of the Bosnian war. The piece reflects the

power, drama and hope of a single musician in the midst

of war, reflecting on the power of music to bring hope. The

rock rhythm section contributes to an intense and very hip

musical experience!

10092657 Str Orch Percussion Required.......60.00

WIZARDS IN WINTER—Paul O’Neill & Robert

Kinkel/arr. Phillips. As seen in the mind-boggling “Trans-

Siberian Orchestra” stage show! Highlight your strings and

even add a rhythm section if you like. Whatever you do, play

it large! Exciting music for your holiday concert!

10066528 String Orchestra..................50.00

VENI, VENI (O Come, O Come Emmanuel)—

Chip Davis/arr. Longfield. This simple, plaintive

carol is yet another memorable title from “Mannheim

Steamroller’s” “Fresh Aire Christmas”, and continues to be

heard every December. Robert Longfield’s arrangement

makes it approachable for any string ensemble and

includes short, expressive moments for a violin soloist.

Suitable for holiday concerts or as a prelude to church

services throughout the Christmas season.

10083784 String Orchestra..................45.00

e AWAY IN A MANGER—Chip Davis/arr.

Longfield. In true “Mannheim Steamroller” style, this

gently moving carol has a great pop-style hook that

students will love to play. Yet another edition for string

ensemble, adapted from the “Mannheim.”

10061376 String Orchestra..................45.00

CHRISTMAS CONCERTO (Op. 6, No. 8)—

Archangelo Corelli/arr. Dackow. What a

wonderful choice for a holiday concert! Corelli’s “Concerti

Grossi” are brilliant examples of Baroque orchestral

writing, with many sequences, chain suspensions and

sharp dynamics. This is one of the best-known of the

concerti, and because of its subtitle, is perfect for any

seasonal concert. The arrangement, by Sandy Dackow, is

right on the mark for orchestras at this level. Superb!

2353688 String Orchestra..................40.00

e CHRISTMAS DAY—Gustav Holst/arr. Wagner.

Written by Gustav Holst in 1910 for choir and orchestra,

this arrangement provides the important lines from all

voices woven into a single musical fabric. The interplay of

the traditional carols Good Christian Men Rejoice!; God

Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; Come Ye Lofty, Come Ye Lowly

and The First Nowell provides a rich and challenging

texture that will delight all. In classic Holst fashion, you will

have moments in three flats and moments of two carols at

the same time, but that is to be expected! This is sure to

become a perennial work for strong string orchestras!

10027008 String Orchestra..................55.00

CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL, A (Adapted for String

Orchestra)—Leroy Anderson/arr. Story. At

last, Leroy Anderson’s ever-popular holiday medley is

concert opener or closer! Included are: Joy to the World;

Deck the Halls; God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen; Good King

Wenceslas; Hark! The Herald Angels Sing; Silent Night;

Jingle Bells and Adeste Fideles. Highly recommended!

CHRISTMAS SONG, THE—Mel Torme/Ricketts.

Certainly one of the most-loved Christmas songs ever

written, many remember it by the opening lyric, “Chestnuts

Roasting On An Open Fire.” It’s a sweet, wistful melody

that has a place in many hearts, and this arrangement for

strings is just right for your holiday concerts.

2473245 String Orchestra..................40.00

FIVE UKRAINIANS IN A BELL TOWER

(Ukrainian Bell Carol)—Rick England. Who says

strings can’t swing? It’s Brubeck meets Leontovitch! This jazz

setting of Ukrainian Bell Carol in 5/4 time is even more fun

with the optional drumset. This is sure to surprise the crowd

and give your strings something they can’t wait to play.

When the audience smiles, you will consider it a success!

10050423 String Orchestra..................47.00

e GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN—arr. Chip

Davis/adap. Longfield. This “Mannheim Steamroller”

favorite is an energetic movement that features a solo violin

throughout. The mixture of contemporary and Renaissance

styles also sets it apart, making it a solid choice to add

variety to a holiday program.

10059339 Str Orch Percussion Required.......45.00

String Orchestra

e JINGLE BELLS HOEDOWN—arr. Robert Kerr.

This is sure to become a perennial favorite! It’s the world’s

most beloved holiday song turned into a rip-roaring fiddle

tune worthy of any holiday concert or square dance. And it

doesn’t ignore the lower strings. Double-stops, pizzicato and

some serious “sawing away” keep this one exciting from

start to finish. As the composer says, “the faster, the better!”

2472806 String Orchestra..................45.00

MOON OF WINTER, THE (The Huron Carol)—

arr. Vince Gassi. The Huron Carol is Canada’s oldest

Christmas carol, written in 1643 by Jean de Brebeuf, a

Jesuit missionary. The melody is from a traditional French

folk song, Une Jeune Pucelle (A Young Maid). Intended as

a gift and teaching aid to the Huron people, Brebeuf wrote

the lyrics in their native language. The Moon of Winter is a

powerful, moving adaptation of the carol for strings that will

bring a sense of reverence and honor to your Christmas

concert program.

10280125 String Orchestra..................45.00

FANTASIA ON GREENSLEEVES (What Child is

This)—Ralph Vaughan-Williams/arr. Monday.

Rescored for strings, harp (keyboard) and two violin

soloists, this ethereal setting of Vaughan-Williams stellar

opus retains the form and texture of the original while

bringing it to a “student-friendly” level for more players

to enjoy. Melodic material is passed effortlessly from one

section to another as Vaughan-Williams intended and the

first violin solo includes some 3rd position work while the

second solo only requires 1st position. For large or small

performing groups, this is a rich setting of a classic work

appropriate for concerts, Christmas presentations, and

festivals throughout the year.

10092446 String Orchestra..................47.00

classical Christmas!

Baching

Around The

Christmas Tree

HAPPY HOLIDAY/ WHITE CHRISTMAS—Irving

Berlin/arr. Ricketts. Two classic songs by America’s

greatest songwriter are showcased in Ted Ricketts’ newest

arrangement for string groups. Ted’s combination creates a

Happy Holiday, followed by the quintessential Christmas

ballad. Christmas programming at its very best.

10077999 String Orchestra..................50.00

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE

CHRISTMAS—arr. Calvin Custer. This is an

exceptionally refined setting of the familiar holiday classic!

Fresh harmonies with tasteful accompaniment parts for

piano and optional guitar and drums make for a silky

smooth sound that really works for orchestra. Technical

demands are limited, but more advanced orchestras will

want to play it just because it sounds so good!

2351674 String Orchestra..................50.00

e IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER—Gustav Holst/arr.

Leavitt. A haunting, elegant carol is beautifully rendered

by John Leavitt in this compelling setting for strings. Holst’s

classic Christmas piece makes a memorable centerpiece

for a holiday program; one you’ll want to perform year

after year.

10033625 Str Orch Percussion Optional.......40.00

PAT-A-PAN—arr. Chip Davis & Robert

Longfield. From the acclaimed CD “Christmas in the

Aire,” this string version of the holiday favorite Pat-a-

Pan features an energetic style with an underlying light

rock foundation. Continuing the “Mannheim Steamroller”

tradition of creative, contemporary settings, this is an

attractive program piece for a holiday program.

10081961 String Orchestra..................45.00

RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER—

Johnny Marks/arr. Morales. This is a great way

to begin a holiday concert! It’s an energetic rendition of

the Christmas favorite with a Latin flavor to it. Percussive

staccato bowing imitates a “clave rhythm” as the melody

gets passed from section to section.

2474327 String Orchestra..................50.00

e THREE MINUTE NUTCRACKER—P.I. Tchaikovsky/arr.

Conley. A clever, light-hearted finish to

your holiday program! With the never ending goal to

keep the concert short, here’s the essence (nine themes)

of the classic ballet, honed down to three minutes or less.

Stage it with a big hourglass-type egg timer, or with a

projected digital stopwatch and let the audience watch as

your orchestra works toward the finish. For added drama,

there’s an optional accelerando (molto, if need be) in the

Trepak finale, to bring it in under the wire.

NUTCRACKER BALLET, SET 1—P.I. Tchaikovsky/

arr. Isaac. For decades, the skilled arranging of the late

Merle Isaac made great works playable by developing

orchestras. Here he presents the beloved “Nutcracker”

ballet in two sets that sound like the originals. Feature a

good pianist in Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy. Show off

the entire orchestra in Waltz Of The Flowers. Perform “as is”

or make your own suite with the addition of set 2. (Pepper

fantastic finish to your holiday concert! Wonderful music!
