Edition: Jazz Studio Orchestra Arrangement with Solo Vocal and Vocal Choir [SATB]

Description: Medium - Medium Easy

Publisher: Jazz Lines Publications

This arrangement of the traditional God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen was written by Bill Loose and Ken Lane for Frank Sinatra's 1947 recording session. However, for unknown reasons this arrangement was not recorded. The other Christmas-themed recordings from this date, along with others that were recorded both before and after, were bundled together by Columbia Records and originally released in 1948 as a 78 rpm set titled Christmas Songs by Sinatra. Although Axel Stordahl conducted this recording session and is credited with most of the arrangements, they were actually arranged by Bill Loose, John P. Hicks, Earle Hagen, George Siravo, Lowell Martin, and the choir by Ken Lane.

This publication has been based on Bill Loose's pencil score and the original set of parts copied for the recording session - this is not a transcription. The vocal key is C minor.
