Program Notes

Originally recorded in the 1940s, this moderately paced and appealing swing tune has remained a holiday favorite through the years. This carefully written version for incomplete or smaller bands will come together with limited rehearsal time and sound great with groups of all sizes.

- Program Note by publisher


Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!, also known as Let It Snow, is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California, during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.

Despite the lyrics making no mention of any holiday, the song has come to be regarded as a Christmas song in North America due to its winter theme, being played on radio stations during the Christmas and holiday season, and having often been covered by various artists on Christmas-themed albums. In the Southern Hemisphere, however, it can be played during the winter months of June, July, and August; and in New Zealand, some play it at Matariki.
