    Joy to the World

    Music for Brass Band Duration: 3:00 MinutesPercussion: 5 PlayersTimpani, Suspended Cymbal, Snare Drum, Tubular Bells and GlockenspielAll Rights ReservedProgramme Notes"Joy to the World" is a popular Christmas Carol with words by Isaac Watts. As of the late 20th century, "Joy to the World" was the most published Christmas hymn in North America. The words of the hymn are by the English writer Watts are based on Psalm 98, 96:11-12 and Genesis 3: 17-18. The version of this carol usually heard today is from an edition by Lowell Mason and is named “Antioch” and attributed as "arranged by Handel”. This tune has the first four notes in common with the chorus “Lift up your heads” from the Messiah and the third line recalls “Comfort ye” from the same work. But this resemblance is often dismissed as a chance resemblance by Handel scholars today. Another theory is its similarity to a tune called “Comfort” and associated with Charles Wesley’s hymn “O Joyful Sound”, which was written some three years earlier than Lowell Mason’s “Antioch” in 1833. This carol has been recorded by many artists such as Andy Williams, The Supremes, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Cash, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Vic Damone and Mariah Carey.

    Winter Wonderland - Dick Smith - Philip Sparke

    This enduringly popular seasonal song has long been a Christmas favourite, even though the lyrics don't mention 'Christmas' at all. The words were by Dick Smith (1901-1935) and the music by Felix Bernard (1897-1944). The inspiration was reportedly a visit by Smith to Honesdale's (his hometown) Central Park when it was covered in snow. The first recording was made by Richard Himber's Ritz-Carlton Orchestra in 1934. The same year Guy Lombardo and his band, The Royal Canadians, took the song to number 2 in the US Billboard Chart, where it stayed for 9 weeks. It has since been recorded by over 150 artists, the most successful versions being by Perry Como and the Andrews Sisters, both released in 1946.
