The Little Drummer Boy / Peace on Earth

Im not a fan of using DS al Coda markings in choral music since choirs tend to be noisy when flipping back and forth between pages while singing. However, it does save paper in the printed copy, and the score itself is very accurate to the original recording from Bing Crosbys Christmas TV show. I was happy to find a publication at all for this song since it has never been officially published and distributed as sheet music, and to have one that is accurate is a pleasant surprise since a few other web sites have "unofficial" transpositions that are not consistent with the TV recording of the song.

Modern day Christmas Descant

The "Peace on Earth" part adds a great descant to the classic Christmas song. Could be added as an instrumental addition instead of a sung part.

I have always loved the song Little Drummer Boy. Adding Peace On Earth added to it. The arrangement done by Bing Crosby and David Bowie is excellent.

Lovely Arrangement!

It is "spot on" to what I remember hearing from Bing and David oh-so-many-years ago. I especially like the ability to transpose the music, making this lovely arrangement accessible to singers. Thank you, Music Notes!
