From the very first measure of this arrangement you will be hooked on the spirit of Celtic music. The term Celtic, for the most part, has come to refer to folk music handed down from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. The first of the two Celtic carols is a Welsh air. Its original title is Breuddwyd Y Frenhines, translated to English as Springtime is Returning. The music certainly expresses those optimistic words. The melody is absolutely sparkling and quite infectious in a resonant key of G major. The second carol is Hey, Ho Nobody Home, a popular tune from England which reflects back to the time of caroling door to door, asking for food and drink. It is in E minor, thereby offering a contrast to the first carol. The arranger was compelled to bring in the famous tune God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen because of the once popular Peter, Paul and Mary rendition. All of the instruments get to play the melody as it is treated as a round. The momentum of this imitative section propels the piece back to the beginning (via D.C. al Coda) Not a drop of energy is lost in the return to the first carol. Just enough of the first tune is revisited and then to the coda for a stretto of the tune over a cadential formula which resolves with a joyous reference to the first theme. This selection will make a wonderful addition to your holiday program. About the Composer Deborah Baker Monday currently teaches in the Logan City School.
