Santa on the Housetop (Score and Parts)

Comp. Benjamin R. Hanby, Arr. William Owens
In Stock(1)


Here's a creative new twist on a popular holiday gem that will delight students and audiences - and Santa himself! Based on Up on the Housetop by Benjamin R. Hanby, this work is easy to play, skillfully scored, and every section shares in the melody. Great tones with only six notes - yule really like this one!

The piece from beginning to end has a special festive quality, and should be bouncy, not heavy. At measure 6, percussion and low voices must be considerate of the upper woodwind melody. Play the sections at measures 14 and 26 in the same festive manner as the introduction. The slide whistle and the "Ho!, Ho!, Ho!" parts should be bold and without reservation. The section at measure 34 (especially the last three notes) should be climactic in nature but not overplayed.
