A Latin Christmas

A medley of two Christmas songs from Mexico and the Catalan section of the Iberian Peninsula: "Las Posadas" and "Fum, fum, fum."  The first tune, "Las Posadas," is a nine-day celebration with origins in Spain, now celebrated chiefly in Mexico, Guatemala and parts of the Southwestern United States.  "Fum, fum, fum" is thought to have originated in the 16th or 17th century.  There is an optional Chorus part included.

Performance Notes: 

The key signatures are within the abilities of the middle school to high school band with sections going back and forth between F major and F minor.  Rhythmic challenges are sixteenth note triplets, dotted eighth sixteenths, and meter changes from 2/4 to 3/4 and back.  Care should be taken to observe the subito piano markings at letter C.  Basses part is written for String Bass (siempre pizz) and Tuba.  If a String Bass is not present, Tubas should play lower part when possible.  At letter A there is a part written only for String Bass which is covered in the Bass Clarinet part.  The Tuba should not play this part.  Percussion part may be play on a drum set.
