                       Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)
                               by SAVATAGE
                      From the Album, "Dead Winter Dead"

        If you don't have "Dead Winter Dead" I would suggest you buy a
  a copy real soon.  It is some of the best music I have heard in a long
  time. All of the songs are truly inspired, and the guitar work is truly
  phenominal.

        This is the song (and part of the larger story) where the Old
  Chellist is playing Christmas music during the shelling of Sarajevo
  on Christmas Eve. When the songs end, so does the music as he was
  killed. (This _is_ a true story, I remember seeing it on the News
  when it happened.)

        This song has some of the best arranging I have seen in a long
  time. It starts off "Rest ye Merry Gentlemen", and goes into "Carol
  of the Bells".  I've done my best to include piano, guitar, flute, and
  bell parts.

  This is the backround part  Chello plays this over
  Play many times.

  the background.       Chello plays twice, waiting a
                        meassure for the flute to play.
