2017 Holiday Contest Entry

This arrangement of seven traditional Christmas favorites will make your heart joyful as you prepare for the Christmas season! The melody moves around in a conversation-like way, with rich harmonies and beautiful descants enhancing the melodies. The medley begins triumphantly in the key of concert F Major, moves soulfully to the parallel minor, and then finishes brightly back in F Major. Instrumentation is for Eb clarinet, 2 Bb clarinet parts, alto clarinet, and bass clarinet. I have included alternate Bb parts for the Eb clarinet and alto clarinet in case you don’t have those instruments available.

 Christmas carols featured are:

·     Joy to the World

·     Good King Wenceslas

·     We Wish You a Merry Christmas

·     Deck the Halls

·     God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

·     What Child is This?

·     Ding Dong Merrily on High

I hope you will enjoy performing this medley as much as I have enjoyed arranging it! Audiences are sure to love it. This would work well in a variety of venues during the Christmas season: school concert, church, shopping mall background music, chamber music concert, prelude to a choral performance/ carolsing-along, etc. It’s perfect for anywhere you want to lift people’s spirits with beautiful, familiar seasonal music.

 

There are also versions of this medley (with different titles) available for flute choir, woodwind quintet, brass quintet, saxophone quartet, string quartet, and piano.

    I have been playing the clarinet for a good many years, and I am always looking for something new to play. This medley is a fresh spin on some old favorites, so that is nice. I like that there are alternate Bb versions of the Eb clarinet and alto clarinet...

    parts, so if our Eb or alto player can't be there, someone can cover the part on Bb clarinet. I like this arranger's work, and I hope they will write more clarinet choir arrangements. We are sick and tired of playing the same old stuff all the time! Maybe some arrangements of jazz standards, too? Our audience loves those.
