Just a note: The sleigh bells are muted currently as I haven't had a chance to upload the song to youtube with the soundfont. I do plan on doing this at some point.

This is for Daniel's Christmas Contest in the DCI group. It's some of my personal favorite carols all stacked on top of each other in a nice, tasty carol sandwich.

WIP: I threw this all together this weekend and had a blast doing it. I will likely adjust and add parts through the next few weeks. Please let me know what you think!

Oh and yeah, it is for the Christmas Challenge that Daniel created so thanks for gifting me pro and here is what I came up with. I'm 18.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! - Pentatonix (Full Sheet Music w/ Lyrics)

This is a transcription of Pentatonix's cover of "Let It Snow!" from their Christmas album, A Pentatonix Christmas.

I finally found some time and managed to finish this! The swing rhythm took a while to get used to :P

Reno does an amazing job on this! It's amazing how a 17-year-old got the opportunity to sing bass with Pentatonix, good for him! This is a very fun, very "Pentatonix" arrangement. One of my favorites.

I will probably transcribe more Christmas music throughout December (once I'm done with exams), so be on the lookout for that!

Genosse Weihnachtsmann - Comrade Santa

3 parts4 pages01:30a year ago2,213 views
Piano, Guitar, Bass
Today is the first Advent. And Wednesday is Nikolaus Day. (In Cologne at least.) So here's a Christmas poem for the whole family...

Comrade Santa

Wave to, wave to Santa Claus
It'll start all over again soon:
Knowing how the "we" is created,
hoping the world turns around,
believing that time is passing.

Every year again
people become brothers.
Rows firmly closed,
find there at the bottom
of their hearts, the comrades
for the next round.

Those, as they suspect,
without hook without eyelets,
like the real good guys -
and they really believe it -
are different from all the bad ones,
and the Bi-Ba-Butzemann.
Wave to, wave to Santa Claus.

WIP: Getting ready for Christmas... decided to make a big band arrangement from a great little piano version found here - https://musescore.com/user/17430/scores/31579

Still needs a lot of work on the rhythm section (drums are lazy), need to fix some harmonies and fill out the sax and guitar parts a bit more. Should also probably go a bit easier on the lead player's chops. :-)

I don't arrange for big band much, so any feedback is much appreciated.

Babes in Toyland No. 13: Toyland

Voice, Piano
Here it is -- the most famous song from the operetta. I don't know why this seems at all like a Christmas song, but it is considered a part of the holiday musical repertoire and can be found in many Christmas medleys and compilations.

Babes in Toyland No. 12A: March of the Toys

1 part8 pages03:54a year ago399 views
Piano
I hit a roadblock in transcribing "Babes in Toyland" when I got to its third piece, and first recitative, "Never Mind Bopeep We Will Find Your Sheep." It was extremely long and nearly-but-not-quite repetitive, as well as musically dull and full of lyrics that would be annoying to enter into Musescore. After several weeks of procrastination, I decided to just skip around and transcribe various pieces from the operetta, eventually getting around to transcribing the recitatives at the end.
Astonishingly, this is the first transcription, of any kind, of "March of the Toys" on Musescore. I would expect that given how famous it is, there would be an arrangement of it posted already, but there isn't a single one.

AWAY with the old version of this song for now we got a better version of "Carol Of The Bells." This song started off as a piano cover with the idea of making a more upbeat style version of a classic christmas song. Well this doent look like piano. This is also the most compleat version of "Carol Of The Bells" On Muescore.

How Great Thou Art - Pentatonix (Full Sheet Music w/ Lyrics)

Trumpet, Bass(5), Percussion(5)
NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED

This is a transcription of Pentatonix's cover of "How Great Thou Art" from their new Christmas album, A Pentatonix Christmas, featuring Jennifer Hudson.

I finished this one up quicker than I anticipated! I love this arrangement; it's so powerful, and Jennifer Hudson absolutely slays. Kirstin also hits some pretty impressive notes in this song, but they're quite buried in the mix :(. I kept hearing (or feeling) first octave notes from Matt–is it just me or is he hitting some insane bass notes???

This song was quite difficult to transcribe, as there's so much doubling in the background parts. I'm sure I missed a bit here and there, but this should be near completely accurate. I really hope they make a video for this song!

Leave any suggestions and requests in the comments!

Full opera for opera and soloists. I thought that there aren´t full operas on Musescore, that´s why I uploaded this, although it´s a little bit short. Somewhere in the Overture is an mistake, because I made this score out of copying the seperate pieces.
Yes, I know, 14 followers is not that much, but I`m so happy and I wanted to say thank you! ;-)

This is a transcription of Pentatonix's cover of "Deck the Halls" from their newest Christmas album, a Pentatonix Christmas (Deluxe Edition).

This is probably one of my favorite songs from the album–it's such a fun arrangement; Matt really did a good job on this song! I hope he can have a few more opportunities to showcase his bass voice, as there isn't much around on the internet.

I do plan to transcribe the rest of the deluxe tracks; I have two more left (I'm not even going to try to transcribe the String Mob Hallelujah lol).

As always, leave suggestions and requests in the comments!

This is a transcription of Pentatonix's cover of "Away in a Manger" from their newest Christmas album, A Pentatonix Christmas (Deluxe Edition).

Sorry, I've been busy with school lately and therefore have not had time to transcribe/be very active on MuseScore and YouTube. Wizard of Ahhs should be done very soon (I hope).

Loving these new tracks and the new bass (basses????), Matt (and Reno????).

Ring, Ring Forever! (Carol of the Bells - Arklight Percussion Ensemble Arrangement)

Finally! After 4 long months of nothing but a busy schedule, I've managed to find the time to get another piece finished and ready for your ears to enjoy!

This one's kind of special to me. Almost 2 years ago is when I posted my first arrangement I had ever done, and as you may already be aware, it was an arrangement of Carol of the Bells. This is going to be one of the last pieces my percussion ensemble will have the opportunity to perform before we all graduate, part ways, and move on with our lives, so I wanted to put something together for us to play that would serve as a reminder of how far we've come.
Yeah I know blah blah blah -(insert more personal stuff here). Anyways! I'm pretty excited about this one because I really feel like it's a good measure of how much I've improved since I started. I don't know if I would say it's the best thing I've ever written, but it's fun to look at the differences between this one and the first one.

If you want to listen to the old arrangement first and let me know how big you think the gap is, feel free. I'd be happy to hear about it. You can find it here: https://musescore.com/arklight/thebellswillforeverring

Now, without further ado, I present to you:
Ring, Ring Forever!

Thanks for listening!
