A festive, musical cocktail by Tim Paton for concert band, bringing together a folk-feel dance motif and a familiar carol, to create the atmosphere of a village celebration.
Opening with a lively Jig, where the music joyfully dances around the band, the piece then settles to offer the tranquility of Gustav Holst’s beautiful melody In the Bleak Mid-Winter.
This peacefulness is soon overtaken by the reintroduction of the dance motif, finishing off the musical celebration with the dance and the carol mingling together.
A very nice addition to Christmas repertoire, presenting a little bit of tradition amidst some lovely, imaginative scoring.
Also available for brass band.
