Upbeat and positive, the music is syncopated and playful as it builds towards the mid section with the initial strings joined by pizzicato bass, harp and percussion as it builds towards a strong, triumphant climax.
Bright & Melodic II
A whimsical adaptation of the culturally celebrated Christmas classic, as a piano introduces the famous melody, as a marching snare, brass and pizzicato string accompaniment add a sense of contrasting frivolity.
A gentle, ethereal piano plays the eminent carol theme, as a solitary festive tubular bell, marching snare and soft guitar elements are introduced to help deliver a heartfelt moment of festive magic.
A gracefully spacious performance of the 19th Century Christmas poem and carol; a warm, comforting piano piece transcends smoothly across three verses, as resplendent euphonium, cello and oboe build to a reassuring finale.
