When the Snow Lay Round About

(Good King Wenceslas)

Reflections on the Season
When the Snow... -
00:0000:00

Grade: 3

Genre: Bossa, rock, Wenceslas

 

Starting as a delicate bossa and moving to a driving rock, this will be the highlight of your concert. The solo passages can be assigned to any instrument – we provide the transpositions. This is fun to play, and who doesn’t like the Trans-Siberian Steamroller approach to Christmas?

Reflections on the Season

(Silent Night)

00:0000:00

Grade: 2

Genre: Christmas, holiday

 

A charming setting of Silent Night with unique textures to add interest to this perennial favorite. It’s playable by inexperienced groups, but lacks nothing in musical sophistication. With lush harmonies and dramatic contrasts, this makes a fine encore on any Christmas program. It really is the top selling title in our catalog!

Prelude: In Sweet Jubilation

(In Dulci Jubilo)

Reflections on the Season
Prelude: In Sweet... -
00:0000:00

Grade: 2

Genre: 6/8, chorale prelude

 

This is in the style of a great organ prelude with contemporary harmonies and plenty of colorful percussion. It is a fine way to introduce young groups to 6/8. The band will enjoy preparing this as everyone gets some moving technical passages. Your fans will appreciate the traditional holiday melody.

Evermore and Evermore

(Of the Father's Love Begotten)

Evermore and Evermore
Evermore and Evermore -
00:0000:00

Grade: 3

Genre: Plainchant, Divinum mysterium

 

This haunting melody from the 1200s is transformed into a powerful anthem that captures the jubilation of the season. A commanding fanfare, colorful percussion, and rhythmic intensity combine to create the showcase moment on your concert.

Born This Happy Morn

(O Come, All Ye Faithful)

Born This Happy Morn
Born This Happy Morn -
00:0000:00

Grade: 2

Genre: Christmas, Adeste Fideles

 

The suspenseful opening and tom-tom driven African groove dress this favorite carol in a new holiday outfit. The low brass will jump on the funky bass line.

Renouveau de Noel

Renouveau de Noel
Renouveau de Noel -
