Five Christmas Duets for two equal saxes, or alto and tenor saxes. Arranged in a variety of styles, from traditional carols to swing!


1. I Saw Three Ships

A lively, dancing arrangement with the tune shared between the two players.


2. Silent Night

A traditional setting of this beautiful carol.  Player 1 takes the tune whilst player 2 provides a gentle accompaniment.


3. We Three Kings

A funky arrangement in 4/4 based around an opening riff.  Both players share the tune and the accompaniment, with jazz inflections throughout.


4. Coventry Carol

A peaceful interlude between the more lively carols, this arrangement provides a beautiful moment of calm. 


5. Jingle Bells

A fun, jazzy arrangement of everyone's favourite Christmas song! After a short bebop influenced introduction, the two parts take turns playing the tune and bass line.
