Program Notes

This unique and wonderful setting of Christmas carols in 3/4 time was arranged by John Cacavas. A dramatic brass intro opens with It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, set here as a woodwind feature. O Tannenbaum is then treated in fanfare-like fashion featuring the brass section, followed by a smooth woodwind rendition of Noel that features a flowing trumpet solo. The piece ends with a novel version of Jingle Bells written in the style of a Viennese grand waltz.
