    Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas - Meredith Willson - John Barber

    Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas was originally a hit for Perry Como and the Fontane Sisters with Mitchell Ayres and his Orchestra in 1951.Composed by Meredith Willson, the popular belief was that Willson wrote the song whilst staying in the Grand Hotel in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.Whilst the arrangement doesn't feature the Fontane sisters, it does seek to capture the full palette of orchestral colour as heard on the 1951 original recording, with tenor horns often playing the part of the female close harmony group.

    Toccata from Suite Gothique - Leon Boellmann - Rita Arendz

    Composed in 1895, the Toccata from Suite Gothique, Op. 25, is the most recognized and popular of L?on Bo?llmann's works. It is a staple of the organ repertoire. Since 1970 when Eric Ball transcribed it for brass band, it has maintained its popularity among brass players.The Toccata is a true perpetuum mobile exhibiting the remarkable sonorities of the Post-Romantic era. The form displays various capabilities of the French organ - registration (the combination of stops), the Grand Orgue, Positif and R?cit manuals, and the pedals - creating energy and excitement.Couple the organ with a brass band - the result is a greater range of mood and versatility of sound, providing new opportunities both to play and to hear.This setting's first performance was on 3 July 2017 at St Matthew's United Church, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, with Wayne Rogers as organist (Minister of Music, St Matthew's) under the baton of David Childs (Associate Conductor, North American Brass Band Summer School).
