Note: This work has, in some traditions, assumed somewhat of a Christmas role. It was a featured selection on the 1964 recording The Glorious Sound of Christmas recorded by the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy along with the Temple University Choir. -cdp
"In Dulci Jubilo" recorded by:Θ - Eastman Trombone Choir, on Legacy of Emory Remington - CD 25736.
I wanted to achieve two goals in compiling this set of carols: that there would be plenty of them and that they would be easily playable for most trombonists - on cold December nights. With the help of my good friend, Steve Sample, I believe we have succeeded.
So take the book out this Christmas season and have fun. And please "swing" on Steve's arrangements. - Sonny Ausman
These pieces are of medium difficulty and all in bass clef making them perfect for any group of performers. -the publisher
