After a short introduction, Up on the Housetop kicks into a catchy, latin flavoured version of this children's favourite Christmas carol. Starting in measure 9, Part 5 plays a standard latin bass line, Part 3 imitates the arpeggios used by the piano in a mambo chart, while Parts 1 and 2 perform the melody and harmony of the song. At measure 29, Part 4 takes over the tune, and the other parts provide a response to its melody, so make sure the two parts are well balanced. After the first solo, the piece moves into a new section, where all the instruments drop out, and each is re-introduced with new material. So, as each instruemnt enters, the new material should take precedence.
