What is your favourite Trumpet Xmas Carol? And any preferred solos?
My fav: Little Drummer Boy
This is a very nice play: with the key change.

Here We Come A-Wassailing is my favourite. Sounds great on an unaccompanied horn or played by an ensemble.
I think it's somewhat sad that it's not a mainstream carol here in the States. When sung, this cheerful song reminds us of charity, hospitality, and the fun of Christmastime.
Thanks for that as I had never heard this before. Quite a smiley tune, and being Australian I get the jokes. But I could not find a trumpet version.

Glad you liked it! My favourite choral rendition of the tune is by Theatre Of Voices.
I like sleigh ride
