Musicians all around the world enjoy playing duets; for performance, for developing
sight-reading skills, and often just for fun. However, when it comes to Christmas duets, a
majority of those published by major music publishers are arranged for elementary level
players. My wife is a flute teacher and I first arranged these duets for her to play with her
intermediate and advanced students. They proved to be a delight for them; challenging at
times, without being overwhelming; at times, joyful; at times, uplifting; at times, serene.
Now, I've adapted these duets so that they may be enjoyed by the saxophone community.
.Most are also quite suitable for informal performances and church services.
I hope you will find these Christmas Duets to be a delight for you, too.

"behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord!"
Proclaim the Good News!
K.B
