After a brief introduction with Jingle Bells and Christmas Bells, this original arrangement of some favourite Christmas Carols starts with a gentle rendition of the English version of Away in a Manger, played on Cathedral Organ, strings and harp. On the repeat, this version is intermixed with the American version in a slightly fuller rendition. Following this is a brief introduction to the next Carol…We Three Kings. The verse is played on French Horn, over a strings, harp and timpani accompaniment. The chorus comes in jubilantly with a fuller arrangement including a swirling woodwind accompaniment. After a brief, gentle linking bridge of Silent Night, the music switches to a quiet string arrangement of a particular favourite Carol of mine..See Amidst the Winter Snow. On the repeat, a full blown orchestral rendition of this Carol (complete with Cathedral Organ, choir and crashing cymbals) rounds off this medley in a suitably stirring, triumphant manner.
This medley is sure to suit any Christmas production that requires traditional Christmas music that is Seasonal, fun and uplifting in equal measures.
