Fanfare and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (Mannheim Steamroller Concert Band). By Mannheim Steamroller. Arranged by Chip Davis and Robert Longfield. For Concert Band, Trumpet (Score & Parts). Mannheim Steamroller Concert Band. Grade 4. Published by Mannheim Steamroller (HL.4002454).
Adapted from the Mannheim Steamroller CD A Fresh Aire Christmas, this is actually two publications in one! First is a glorious fanfare in the High Renaissance tradition of antiphonal brass choirs echoing one another. Next is a contemporary “Mannheim” treatment of the familiar carol, complete with a rock groove combining rhythmic and harmonic surprises. Performed individually or as a set, this is a terrific and unique addition to the holiday repertoire for concert bands.
