Russian Christmas Music: Contra Bassoon
Russian Christmas Music: Contra Bassoon (Contra Bassoon). Composed by Alfred Reed (1921-2005). For Concert Band. Instructional. Part. 4 pages. Published by Alfred Music - Digital Sheet Music (AX.00-PC-0002379_CB).
The theme carefully explored by Alfred Reed in this repertoire standard is ""Carol of the Little Russian Children" which is an ancient Russian Christmas carol. You can hear four distinct sections originally called "Children's Carol," "Antiphonal Chant," "Village Song" and "Cathedral Chorus" all joined in this continuous contemporary setting. The almost overwhelming sound picture with varied tone colors and brilliant brass choir sounds is a classic in every sense. "Russian Christmas Music" by Alfred Reed is a worthy addition to the Belwin Classic Band series. This recording compliments of the United States Air Force Band, Col. Lowell Graham, conductor.
List/syllabus: TX UIL PML: Band, Winds, Perc.
