Program Notes

Based on Jingle Bells, here is a merry romp through hills and fields as Richard Saucedo uses a mixture of meter changes, exciting fanfares, unique harmonic and melodic twists, and a sense of joy in this marvelous setting for the holiday season.

- Program Note by publisher


Jingle Bells is one of the best-known and commonly sung American songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title One Horse Open Sleigh in the autumn of 1857. It has been claimed that it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir; however, historians dispute this, stating that it was much too "racy" (and secular) to be sung by a children's church choir in the days it was written.
