About this Book Over the past couple years, I have had a growing need for high quality, entertaining arrangements of holiday music for the solo marimbist. While there are undoubtedly some great resources available, I saw a need for more pieces to be added to this repertoire. This collection is an attempt to meet that need. It is geared more toward the experienced marimbist, and all pieces are written for a 5-octave marimba, though some may be cleverly adjusted to fit onto smaller keyboards if necessary. I have included a brief history about each piece, a few personal thoughts behind my arrangement, and lyrics to those songs with words. It is truly my hope that performers and listeners alike will connect to these new arrangements of classic Christmas works. –Brian Blume

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Words by Charles Wesley Music by Felix Mendelssohn This Christmas carol first appeared in 1739 in the collection Hymns and Sacred Poems by Charles Wesley. However, this is not the version widely known today, as “Hark!� was sung to a different tune initially. Over a hundred years later, Felix Mendelssohn composed the tune we associate with this carol, and English musician William H. Cummings adapted Mendelssohn’s music to fit the lyrics already written by Wesley, providing the popular version we know today. This arrangement takes the character of a fantasia, freely altering aspects of the tune in an improvisatory style. Hark! the herald angels sing "Glory to the new born King peace on earth, and mercy mild God and sinners reconciled!" Joyful, all ye nations rise join the triumph of the skies with th' angelic host proclaim "Christ is born in Bethlehem!" Hark! the herald angels sing "Glory to the new born King!" Christ, by highest heaven adored; Christ, the everlasting Lord; late in time behold him come, offspring of a virgin's womb. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; hail th' incarnate Deity, pleased with us in flesh to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel. Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the new born King!" Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Sun of Righteousness! Light and life to all he brings, risen with healing in his wings. Mild he lays his glory by, born that we no more may die, born to raise us from the earth, born to give us second birth. Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the new born King!"

Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming Music: 16th c. German A simple, yet beautiful hymn, Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming tells of Jesus’s birth and how his coming fulfilled many prophecies, offering salvation and freedom to those who believe. I chose to maintain this simple and reverent beauty in my arrangement, which includes moments of celebration and moments of reflection. Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming from tender stem hath sprung! Of Jesse’s lineage coming, as men of old have sung. It came, a floweret bright, amid the cold of winter, When half spent was the night. Isaiah ’twas foretold it, the Rose I have in mind; Mary we behold it, the Virgin Mother kind. To show God’s love aright, she bore to us a Savior, When half spent was the night. The shepherds heard the story proclaimed by angels bright, How Christ, the Lord of glory was born on earth this night. To Bethlehem they sped and in the manger they found Him, As angel heralds said. This Flower, whose fragrance tender with sweetness fills the air, Dispels with glorious splendor the darkness everywhere; True man, yet very God, from sin and death He saves us, And lightens every load. (There are other English translations from the original German; I only chose one to print here.)

Nutcracker Medley Music by Peter Illych Tchaikovsky One of Tchaikovsky’s most well-known works (and one of my favorites), the music of The Nutcracker was written in 1892 for a ballet based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King”. The ballet has become a staple during the Christmas season in many cities and ballet companies, especially in the United States. With so many great numbers to choose from, it was a challenge choosing which ones to arrange for the marimba. A major factor in my decision was how well I could preserve the character of the original works with only one person and a marimba. Many numbers seemed to require more hands to effectively capture the depth and beauty of Tchaikovsky’s works. In fact, this is why the third part becomes a duet – I ran out of hands! One may perform the first two parts entirely as a solo. If a second player is available, the third part may be performed with both players on the same marimba (5-octave). If a second player is not available, the third part should be omitted.

A Christmas Carol Words & music by Charles Ives A simple setting to such meaningful words results in a beautiful carol, written by Ives in 1894. The song is in the pastoral key of F, originally in 6/8 time (though I use 3/4 in my arrangement). It has the gentle rocking rhythm of a lullaby and an intimate, crooning melody. Considerate of home singers, Ives kept his melody simple with a span of less than an octave, and the melodic motion is predominantly stepwise. I chose to preserve the simplicity of Ives’ song in this arrangement, which works well as an interlude or prelude within a Christmas service or concert. Little star of Bethlehem! Do we see Thee now? Do we see Thee shining O’er the tall trees? Little Child of Bethlehem! Do we hear thee in our hearts? Hear the Angels singing: Peace on earth, good will to men! Noel! O’er the cradle of a King, Hear the Angels sing: In Excelsis Gloria, Gloria! From his Father’s home on high, Lo! for us He came to die; Hear the Angels sing: Venite adoremus Dominum.

Carol of the Drum Words & music by Katherine Davis Also known as The Little Drummer Boy, this carol tells of a poor young boy when he was summoned by the Magi to the nativity. Without a gift for the baby Jesus, he played his drum with Mary’s approval, recalling, “I played my best for him,” and “He smiled at me.” One of the beauties of the marimba is that it is both melodic and inherently percussive. This virtuosic arrangement utilizes both qualities to represent the little drummer boy. Come, they told me, pa rum pum pum pum Our newborn king to see, pa rum pum pum pum Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum To lay before the king, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum So to honor him, pa rum pum pum pum When we come Baby Jesus, pa rum pum pum pum I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum Thats fit to give a king, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum Shall I play for you? pa rum pum pum pum On my drum Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum The ox and ass kept time, pa rum pum pum pum Then I played for him, pa rum pum pum pum I played my best for him, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum Then he smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum Me and my drum rum, pum pum pum rum, pum pum pum rum, pum pum pum pum, pum

O Come, O Come Emmanuel Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. – Isaiah 7:14 (NIV) Words & music: 8th c. Latin My aim in using various meters is to give this arrangement a different stylistic feel from most versions of the song. Amidst flowing 16th notes, the melody emerges in a somewhat syncopated form, creating a relatively subdued groove. The contrasting second verse highlights the sense of longing and waiting present in the text by using tight and dissonant harmonies. O come, O come, Emmanuel, And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear. Refrain: Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel. O come, Thou Wisdom from on high, Who orderest all things mightily; To us the path of knowledge show, And teach us in her ways to go. Refrain O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free Thine own from Satan’s tyranny; From depths of hell Thy people save, And give them victory over the grave. Refrain O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here; Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, And death’s dark shadows put to flight. Refrain (First four of eight verses printed here.)

What Child is This Words by William Chatterson Dix Music: 16th c. traditional “What Child Is This” was written by English poet and lay theologian William Chatterton Dix as a poem entitled ”The Manger Throne.” It was first used as a hymn text in Sir John Stainer’s Christmas Carols New and Old, 1871. Its well-known tune Greensleeves is a traditional English ballad dating back to the 1580s. While some versions of Greensleeves include a minor 6th (in this case E-flat) for the melody, I prefer the major scale degree 6 (E-natural), as I believe it gives the tune a more traditional character. What child is this, who, laid to rest, On Mary’s lap is sleeping, Whom angels greet with anthems sweet While shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing; Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The babe, the son of Mary! Why lies He in such mean estate Where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christian, fear: for sinners here The silent Word is pleading. Nails, spear shall pierce him through, The Cross be borne for me, for you; Hail, hail the Word Made Flesh, The babe, the son of Mary! So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh; Come, peasant, king, to own Him! The King of Kings salvation brings; Let loving hearts enthrone Him! Raise, raise the song on high! The virgin sings her lullaby. Joy! joy! for Christ is born, The babe, the son of Mary!
