Christmas Music for Saxophone Ensemble from SAXpress.com
It’s that time of year again. If you’re planning a holiday concert, SAXpress has a few things you might enjoy:
Christmas Music for Saxophone Ensembles
March of the Toys from “Babes in Toyland” by Victor Herbert for AATB or SATB Sax Quartet
Originally part of the 1903 operetta, “Babes in Toyland”, March of the Toys by Victor Herbert has become a favorite holiday concert choice.
Sandman’s Song and Evening Prayer from “Hansel and Gretel” by Engelbert Humperdinck SATB Sax Quartet
This quartet presents the “Forest Scene”, a favorite excerpt from the opera “Hansel and Gretel”. There are two parts: the “Sandman’s Song” and the “Evening Prayer”. The “Evening Prayer” (“Abengesegen”) is perhaps the best known work by composer Engelbert Humperdinck. The Evening Prayer may be played as a standalone piece.
Coventry Bells, A Christmas Meditation on Three Carols, Traditional, SAATB Sax Quintet
Three well known Christmas carols, Veni Emmanuel, the Coventry Carol, and the Ukranian Carol (Carol of the Bells) are featured in this SAATB saxophone quintet. They are presented in a variety of textures and moods.
Halleluja Chorus from “Messiah” by Handel for SAATB Sax Quintet
A holiday standard well-known and loved by audiences, this setting for sax quintet is a straightforward transcription, true to the music written by Handel, with no modern additions. For convenience it has been transposed from the original key of D major into the key of E-flat. If you would like it in the original key, please contact me.

There are several new pieces to be added to the Free Music section this weekend. I’m starting off with the JS Bach Prelude in D minor, BWV 899.1. Typical of Bach, the prelude is followed by a fugue or in this case a fughetta; however, the prelude is written in four voices, the fughetta is written in three. The fughetta will be uploaded this weekend too. The prelude is for SATB quartet, the fughetta is for ATB trio. It might be nice to give your soprano sax player a break.
