This trumpet solo was written by Nick Simmons-Smith at the request of Dallas Brass Band for a Christmas concert featuring Elmer Churampi, international trumpet soloist. 


The solo features three Christmas songs: 

i. Mi Burrito Sabanero voy camino de Belén (With my donkey of the Savannah, I’m going to Bethlehem)

ii. Noche de paz (Silent night)

iii. Campana Sobre Campana (Bell above bells, O bells of Bethlehem)


These songs are all very popular in Central and South America - including Peru, where Elmer Churampi is originally from. Each tune has been given a different Latin treatment producing a fast-slow-fast festive concert solo. The solo is not long, but each movement could be played individually.
