    I Saw Three Ships

    Duration: 3:00 Minutes Percussion: 4 PlayersDrum Set, Tom-toms, Triangle, Tambourine, Tubular Bells and GlockenspielAll Rights ReservedProgramme NotesThis is a traditional English carol rumoured to have originated in Derbyshire. The earliest printed version is from the 17th century and the familiar version was later published in William Sandys’ collection of ‘Christmas Carols Ancient and Modern’ in 1833. There are numerous theories as to the meaning of the carol’s words; after all, Bethlehem, the place of Jesus’ birth is not a coastal location. It has been suggested that the ships are actually camels (ships of the desert) used by the Magi for their visit to the baby Jesus. My arrangement takes advantage of the traditional ‘jig’ style of this carol to add a little ‘Celtic’ flavour.Jock McKenzieJock McKenzie studied trumpet at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester where he was a joint recipient of the college’s concerto prize.

    Duration: 4:30 Minutes Percussion: 3 PlayersTimpani, Clash Cymbals, Tambourine, Tubular Bells and GlockenspielAll Rights ReservedProgramme NotesThis popular Christmas carol tells the story of a Bohemian King who braved harsh winter weather to give alms to a poor peasant.

    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.

This oratorio was devised as a compliment to the victorious Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland upon his return from the Battle of Culloden in April 1746. The libretto depicts the period 170–160 BC when Judea was ruled by the Seleucid Empire which undertook to destroy the Jewish religion. Being ordered to worship Zeus, many Jews obeyed under the threat of persecution; however, some did not, one who defied and led through thoughts of liberty and victory was their leader Judas Maccabeus.
