Program Notes

Written as a celebratory overture to a winter holiday program, this fanfare influses driving original material with holiday favorites. The piece includes several well-known carols, though they are not approached as a medley. Rather, they are treated as small excerpts that appear throughout the fanfare without artificial transitions connecting them together. Carols include O Come All Ye Faithful, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Deck the Hall, Good King Wenceslas, Jungle Bells, and Joy to the World.
