Program Notes

This creative and colorful setting of Good King Wenceslas is a true symphony of sound. Every instrument in the concert band is put to good use in this unique setting It's a thoroughly delightful musical exploration into every nuance of the traditional carol. Even the few humorous touches are done with impeccable taste and musicianship.
