Arrangement Details

As you have already seen, here you’ll find a rather easy percussion arrangement and an easier Orff arrangement.

The first one is in C minor and the meter is in 4/4. It begins with some kind of “dialog” between the two groups of mallets (the glockenspiel with the xylophone on the one hand, and the vibraphone with the marimba on the other). That said, the xylophone takes the melody and the rest accompany.

So as to the Orff arrangement, it is adapted in F major. The alto metallophone and the soprano xylophone play the B♭ note, although there is a passage with B natural in meters 19-20. That means that you’ll need two-row instruments for those players.

The percussion arrangement available here includes the following instruments:

  • Glockenspiel
  • Xylophone
  • Vibraphone
  • Marimba (2 players)
  • Triangle
  • Sleigh Bells

The Orff arrangement, respectively, includes:

  • Glockenspiel
  • Alto Metallophone
  • Soprano Xylophone
  • Alto Xylophone
  • Bass Xylophone
  • Triangle
  • Sleigh Bells
