Description:Snowfall was the theme tune of Claude Thornhill, and as you would expect, it is a Piano feature. We have transcribed Thornhills' chart in full, and this call for all 5 Saxes to double Clarinets for the first chorus. However, we recognise that not all bands will have 5 players who double Clarinet, so we have written alternative sax parts on the reverse pages which are written in Miller voicing, with the lead Alto on Clarinet and the Baritone on Alto. The brass ranges are easy and the chart will be playable by bands of all levels, provided you have a dexterous Pianist who can play the rapid running fills near the end of the chart. Snowfall also makes for a good Christmas chart.
