Program Notes

From the family favorite TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas, here is a marvelous arrangement by former Texas Christian University faculty Curt Wilson of this familiar song by Vince Guaraldi.

- Program Note from Texas Christian University Wind Symphony concert program, 3 December 2020

A Charlie Brown Christmas is the eighth studio album by American jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi. The album was released in December 1965. It is the soundtrack to the Christmas television special of the same name.

Guaraldi completed two new originals for the special, Skating, and Christmas Time Is Here. In the weeks preceding the premiere, TV producer Lee Mendelson encountered trouble finding a lyricist for Guaraldi's instrumental intro and wrote Christmas Time Is Here in "about 15 minutes" on the backside of an envelope.
