    Program Notes
    The Yuletide Marimbist, Book 2 was created to continue filling the void in Christmas literature for 4-mallet solo marimba. Like the first book, these arrangements span a wide range of styles and are suitable for diverse performance venues – both sacred and secular. Only a 4.3-octave (low A) marimba is necessary, but you are welcome to play some bass notes down one octave if you have an extended range instrument. A bonus companion book is included, giving you the option to turn each arrangement into a duet, trio, or even a quartet. Use your imagination! All of the arrangements are flexible in that they may be repeated one or more times by utilizing “D.S./D.C.” indications. Suggested stickings can be found throughout, but they are merely recommendations based on my own technique and musical sensitivities. Below you will find performance notes for each solo. Have fun and continue spreading the holiday cheer!

    1. More Good Stuff!

      What's not to like here! Not only is this collection of 8 Christmas Favorites once again superbly crafted, Mr. Daughtrey has further expanded the flexibility within them. The adding of separate Vibe and Percussion parts makes this purchase all the more appealing.
      Each piece has enough variety of style within it that performing one or two at a time can feel like a complete experience. Once again, the composer's compositional chops are ever-present and can be enjoyed by both player and listener.
