Pat-a-pan composed by Mark Burrows. For SATB choir, piano (with optional flute, hand drum). Christmas. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-2666H).
The crisp, rhythmic feel of this marvelous arrangement of the traditional Burgundian carol is highlighted by the clever use of the "Pat-a-pan" and "Tu-re-lu-re-lu" motives that are playfully woven throughout the piece. The only accompanying instruments are the flute and hand drum, which lend a unique color to this vibrant holiday favorite.
