Description

In this steel band version of Trinidad Tidings, John Willmarth has put together a number of the most famous holiday melodies and arranged them in a soca style. Joy to the World, Deck the Halls, Ode to Joy, and The Hallelujah Chorus, are all brilliantly mashed-up to form one cohesive and groovy piece. Included in this arrangement are drumset and auxiliary percussion parts. These help form the ‘’engine room,’’ which is an essential part of any steel band ensemble, where all of the un-pitched instruments help impart an authentic calypso feel!

Trinidad Tidings comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

The percussion ensemble version of Trinidad Tidings is a perfect add on to this steel band version for a fuller, more joyful holiday experience!

Instrumentation

  • Lead pan
  • Double seconds
  • Guitars/cello
  • Bass
  • Drumset
  • Percussion (brake drum, congas)
