New orchestral piece for holiday concerts: “A Children’s Suite for Christmas”
Are you looking for something a little different for your Christmas concert this year? I’ve just completed a new orchestral piece, which includes a number of well-known Christmas tunes: it’s called “A Children’s Christmas Suite”.
Although written to appeal to young people – with such favourites as ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘Little Jesus, sweetly sleep’, ‘The Birds Carol’, ‘Away in a manger’ (British version!) and the Huron Indian Carol – I hope it will be enjoyed by people of all ages. It has a particularly rollicking finale, based on ‘We wish you a merry Christmas’ and a reprise of ‘O come, little children’, with which the piece opened.
Below is a link to a soundcoud version of the piece (sampled), and if you would like a perusal score, do please let me know.
The piece is yet to receive its 1st performance!
