    Prelude- The truth from above - Ralph Vaughan Williams

    In hisPrelude - The Truth from Above, outstanding arranger and curator Paul Hindmarsh has distilled the essence of a timeless Christmas classic by Ralph Vaughan Williams into five minutes of ravishingly unforgettable music for brass band. The variants of the Herefordshire tune popular from theFantasia on Christmas CarolsandThe Oxford Book of Carolsare skilfully and stylishly woven together, from an evocative opening to an ecstatic, multi-layered coda. Unerringly true to the timeless spirit of the original, with the added beauty of the brass-band sound at its most sonorously grave and haunting,Prelude - The Truth from Abovemay be performed separately, or as the first of two preludes, preceding Paul's arrangement ofRhosymedre from the Three Preludes Founded on Welsh Hymn Tunes, also available from Stainer & Bell.
