Irving Berlin's classic calls out for close, scrunchy harmonies that counter-point the crisp frosty imagery of the words with the warmth of mulled wine and seasonal sentiment. This arrangement is notated as a bass melody, but in fact all the parts are so close together in range that the lower three are pretty much interchangeable. Give it to the singer who is longing to sing it.
