    Program Notes
    The Yuletide Marimbist (Book 1) was created to fill a void in Christmas literature for 4-mallet solo marimba. Spanning a wide range of styles, these arrangements are suitable for diverse performance venues – both sacred and secular. Only a 4 1/3-octave marimba is necessary, but cue notes are provided throughout for extended range if you have access to a 5-octave instrument. With one exception ("O Holy Night"), all of the arrangements are flexible in that they may be repeated one or more times by utilizing ending repeats or "D.S./D.C." indication. The book includes performance notes and mallet suggestions for each solo.

    Carol of the Bells
    What Child Is This?
    In the Bleak Midwinter

    1. Flexible and Useful Holiday Arrangements

      I really like the flexibility that Mr. Daughtrey has allowed here. Not only are the arrangements well crafted, he has made it easy to play them with ad lib accompaniments as well as making extended versions.
      Another plus is his attention to detail in notation. His use of tenuto markings to delineate melodic lines makes it easy to "see" what notes are part of the original line.
      These pieces are challenging enough for the performer to enjoy, yet accessible enough for audience enjoyment. Highly recommended.
