Program Notes

Beginning with a rousing verse of O Come, All Ye Faithful, the excitement of the Christmas season comes to life in this medley of ultimate classics. Each theme weaves seamlessly into the next, incorporating a nice mix of contrapuntal writing and tempo changes into a dynamic landscape. This overture medley includes O Come, Little Children; Angles We Have Heard on High; Good King Wenceslas; I Saw Three Ships; Ukrainian Bell Carol; God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; Joy to the World; and The First Nowell.
