Deck the Nutcracker Hall (Deck the Hall / Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy). Composed by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893). Arranged by Greg Gilpin. Choir Secular. This edition: SoundTrax CD. Choral Octavo; Masterworks. Choral Designs. Christmas; Masterwork Arrangement; Romantic; Secular; Winter. Accompaniment and performance CD. Published by Alfred Music (AP.19199).
The most ingenious pairing of words and music we've heard in years: the text of "Deck the Hall" set to Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy." You won't believe how easily the "fa la la's" fit to this universal holiday favorite from The Nutcracker Suite. The holiday text is secular so it's ideal for December concerts, and it's surprisingly easy to sing. It's one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" pieces. The fully orchestrated SoundTrax CD is based on Tchaikovsky's original orchestration.
Recorded Acc. Available.
