        These four brass arrangements of Christmas tunes are true brass classics, written for the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble by their then horn player Ifor James. The real beauty of these pieces is that they can be played by anyone from players of moderate ability to professionals - students, amateurs, professionals - but there is nevertheless so much fun, sparkle, interest and sophistication in the way that this is written that they can easily fit in as part of a professional brass quintet performance, as I have done many times.

        This is a cleverly written and arranged medley of Christmas Carols for brass quintet and light percussion. To get the best effect, it needs to be played with precision and verve. There are a couple of tricky moments which need careful negotiation, but apart from that it's fun to play and good to listen to. The good news is that audiences never seem to tire of it, and Surrey Brass has incorporated it into their core Christmas repertoire for many years for this reason.
