Program Notes

Here's a piece for the entire holiday season! Auld Lang Syne and O Tannenbaum are skillfully combined in a soothing setting that highlights both of these memorable melodies.

- Program Note from publisher

Auld Tannenbaum is the result of Ralph Ford’s skillful intertwining of two popular Christmas carols: Auld Lang Syne and 0 Tannenbaum. Translated to “days gone by,” Auld Lang Syne is taken from a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns. Traditionally played on New Year’s Eve, this song is used to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight The fusion with the German 0 Tannenbaum, depicting the fir's evergreen qualities as a symbol of constancy and faithfulness, highlights the memorable melodies from each carol.
