Big Band and Christmas! What a combination. Phil Driscoll said it a long time ago, “Let Heaven and Nature Swing” and it still swings true! These are classic Christmas songs with a big band/jazz feel to them.
All of these arrangements work with praise band (6 horns), but they are written for full big band as well. When you purchase the charts, you get all the parts so your group can grow from praise band up to a big band. So whatever size group you have, you can always have music for them.
