X-Newsreader: TIN [version 1.2 PL2] I just took a close look at the version I posted earlier, and found some errors and ommission. This is closer to the "real" thing. The ninth, eleventh, thirteenth, and other "masochistic" chords have been simplified to sevenths. THE CHRISTMAS SONG Time: 4/4 Tenor: C majorC Bass: C majorC
