The_Christmas_Song_Full_Score_SAA - SECURE

In July 1945, during a swelteringly hot summer, Bob Wells started to write some lines that conjured up images of winter to keep himself cool – so the story goes! Mel Torme helped with the rest of the lyrics and wrote the music. The Nat King Cole Trio recorded the song in June 1946.

In this arrangement the second altos have the melody until the words “although it’s been said many times, many ways”, where it travels briefly to the first altos, the sopranos and then back to first altos.

At times there are chromatic intervals in the accompanying parts which produce satisfying harmony once they are fine-tuned!
