Written for Silvie Paladino and the Melbourne Staff Band, this arrangement is adapted off the John Foreman version from Melbourne’s Carols by Candlelight. Scored for Vocal Solo and Salvation Army Brass Band with Piano and Bass Guitar with optional Children’s Choir, this stunning version of a very popular tune will be a perfect end to any Christmas program.
Grown Up Christmas List is a poignant reminder at this special time of year of the trouble and strife that exists in our world. The lyrics ask for instead of presents to be given to this “grown-up”, that wars will never start, and time would heal all hearts, a stark contrast to the selfish nature that can pop up in during Christmas. We should all take the time to contemplate what our wish for our world is, and set aside our own desires to help others during this period of celebration.
With a simple Piano part and and optional Bass Guitar and Children’s Choir, this arrangement is able to performed with most bands at an Intermediate level.
