    A Carol Fantasy | Chris Ellis

    An interesting and unusual take on a lesser known Christmas piece.‘I have played many music selections in my time featuring Christmas music, but the funny thing is they all seem to use the same tunes! Jingle Bells, Rudolph…. but I didn’t want to produce another of those!An interesting thought – all Christmas selections seem to be in 4 beats in a bar and Major keys, all bright and festive. Why not try something different?Carol Fantasy uses 3 beats in a bar, and is written in a Minor key!Some of the classics are there, We Three Kings, Coventry Carol, and We Wish you a Merry Christmas, but they are all stitched together using the lesser known Bell Carol. This could well be the only Christmas selection with a Jazz waltz feel!ChrisEnjoy a different, refreshing and enjoyable slant on Christmas music!InstrumentationSoprano CornetSolo, Repiano, 2nd and 3rd CornetsFlugelhornSolo, 1st and 2nd Tenor Horns1st and 2nd BaritonesEuphonium1st, 2nd and Bass TromboneEb and Bb BassTimpaniDrum KitXylophoneISMN: 979-0-708127-40-6

    A Jingle Fantasy - James McFadyen

    This dark tale of Jingle Bells for brass band by James McFadyen is sure to give your seasonal concerts a touch of modernism, and will certainly create a bit of a talking point at your Christmas concerts. Although not immediately obvious as one to put on your public programmes, progressive bands will enjoy putting together a varied programme and including arrangements that shine a new light on old classics.History of Jingle BellsOriginally entitled One Horse Open Sleigh when composed in 1857 by American composer and songwriter James L. Pierpont (1822-1893), Jingle Bells has gone on to become one of the most recognisable Christmas songs of all time.Pierpont's lyrics remain largely untouched, but as you will notice from the following original text, there are a few differences:Dashing tho' the snow,In a one-horse open sleigh,O'er the hills we go,Laughing all the way;Bells on bob tail ring,Making spirits bright,Oh what sport to ride and singA sleighing song tonight.Special Features of this ArrangementIn typical McFadyen style, the original of Jingle Bells as-we-know-it is flipped on its head. The most arresting difference is the speed. The piece is a lot slower than the original, but there are numerous musical devices which keep the music pacing along, including short arpeggiated motifs on baritones and euphoniums.The overall sound of this arrangement of Jingle Bells is dark although, the most skillful of conductors will see the poetry in the music. There is much storytelling to tell here, which builds to a rather serious finale and then closes down with a series of effervescent chords in the lower band.For those looking for a more traditional arrangement of Jingle Bells, one can be found in James McFadyen's lovely medley of Christmas tunes, Christmas Sweets.

    Christmas Brass - Richard Peaslee

    Christmas Brass is a fantasy on six carols, originally commissioned by Mark Freeh for the Manhattan Brass Choir. Duration: 16:30The well-known tune, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, a hymn originally based on a plainsong melody, is here set in 5/4 meter. Modal harmonies are combined with big band style as the piece gains momentum, greatly accentuating the mood of the words, "Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel." The opening 5/4 statement of the theme returns, and the piece ends quietly.In Beautiful Savior (also known by the title Fairest Lord Jesus), a hushed beginning featuring horns, euphoniums, and a muted trumpet, leads through a key change to a satisfying, chorale-likeclosing passage.In Away in a Manger, Peaslee sets two tunes, Cradle Song and Away in a Manger. Following a straightforward presentation of each melody, Peaslee plays them against one another. The music swells to a full climax followed by a hushed ending.Peaslee employs a gentle hand in It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, using flugelhorn solos and duets in a jazz-waltz style.In Silent Night, the traditional carol gets an untraditional harmonization, propelled forward by give-and-take between the two groups of brass instruments in the brass choir: trumpets and trombones versus horns, euphoniums, and tuba.Hark! The Herald Angels Sing begins with a humorous blast of discordant harmonies as multiple carols are sounded at the same time. An up-tempo 4/4 announcement of the melody in the trombone is followed by a metrical modulation in 6/8-3/4 time. An additional metrical modulation bring the music back into 4/4, but at a slower tempo and in a pronounced jazz style. Tempo I returns, and the set of six pieces closes with a big ending.Instrumentation: 4 Trumpets, 2 Horns in F, 4 Trombones, 2 Euphoniums, Tuba, Guitar, Bass, Percussion
