  There is plenty of music to enjoy from BookWright Music this festive season

BrookWright Music has recently published a number of new items in time for the festive season.

The Christmas items which will cater for young players who are just starting out, to soloists who are unable to play in groups due to the Coronavirus pandemic, to small ensembles and right through to Championship Section bands.

Simply Carols

'Simply Carols' is a new publication featuring 45 carols for intermediate ensemble and above.

Arranged by Kevin Larsson, they are designed to be flexible and playable by a wide range of different groups.

The arrangements use limited ranges, keys and rhythms, although harmony has not been compromised so the arrangements are interesting to the player and listener.

Fingerings and slide positions are included for accidentals on the brass parts. The set comes with a piano reduction which could be used to accompany a soloist using the melody line.

Christmas Carols

'Christmas Carols for the Lonely Brass Player' will be ideal for players who are not able to play as part of a group this Christmas, particularly given restrictions with Covid-19.

The series of a capela carol arrangements arranged by Sean A. Brown includes two volumes of specific books of 16 carols for trumpet/cornet, horn, trombone, baritone or euphonium and tuba.

Each consists of a simple statement of the first verse, with one or two verses following, with variation.
