For the first time ever, Tom Fettke has given a voice to Michael W. Smith's regal Celtic carol from Smith's Christmas album, "It's a Wonderful Christmas." "A Highland Carol" was originally recorded as an instrumental piece. Tom has enhanced it with classic Christmas texts, woven together from Charles Wesley and Christopher Wordsworth. Thomas Grassi then collaborated with Tom to transform it into a unique choral gem. Perform it either with keyboard accompaniment or with a full orchestration that includes a "Bolero style" snare and optional Uilleann pipes. A moving, celebrative experience.Core Instrumentation: Flute 1 & 2, Oboe, Clarinet 1 & 2, French Horn 1 & 2, Trumpet 1, Trumpet 2 & 3, Trombone 1 & 2, Trombone 3/Tuba, Percussion, Rhythm, Harp, Violin 1 & 2, Viola, Cello/Bassoon, String Bass, opt.
