Innovative jazz arrangements of three carols originally created for a service of Jazz Carols at St Martin in the Fields, London by Will Todd. Rich harmonies serve to bring new expression to familiar Christmas material which is written for SATB voices and piano, with scope for optional congregational singing.

Another set of carols arranged by Will Todd is also available: Three jazz carols, containing arrangements of Away in a manger, Once in royal David’s city and Silent night.

Composer's note
These carols were written for Andrew Earis and the Choir of St Martin in the Fields and first performed as part of ‘Jazz Carols from St Martin in the Fields’ on 22 December 2012. They can be performed using the supplied piano part or embellished using the chord symbols above. Double bass may also be used in addition to piano, again following the supplied chord symbols. Performers of these carols should feel free to include the congregation or audience in imaginitive ways.

Recommended recording: Christmas in Blue (St Martin-in-the-Fields, SMITFCD04) by St Martin’s Voices, Will Todd Ensemble and Brandenburg Brass & Festival Chorus, conducted by Andrew Earis.

He has worked on operas and stageworks for OperaGenesis at the Royal Opera House and the National Opera Studio, and his 2009 Jazz Concerto for Clarinet, written for Emma Johnson, has been performed in the UK, USA and Finland.
