Program Notes

Christmas joy will fill the air when your band plays this expertly scored holiday medley. A bright opening fanfare leads to a contrapuntal setting of Il est Ne, le Divin Enfant. A crisp lower-register flute soli begins a sharp version of Pat-a-Pan. The medley concludes with a festive interpretation of Good King Wenceslas.
