    Gary,

    Nice piece...everyone gets a little piece of the action. A young band could have a good time with this.

    Thanks for listening, Gary.
    There are several challenges for a young Band, but I think it's doable.

    I don't think I've heard this carol before. I found some lyrics for it so I could imagine the choral version.

    Your arrangement is interesting and sounds like it would be fun to perform as well as to listen to. Maybe an instrumental and choral arrangement together.

    Thanks for listening, Phil.
    Over the years of teaching, I used various arrangements in both Band & Elementary singing. It can be performed at a wide variety of tempi
    which makes it even more interesting. In most cases it's not difficult fingering, which improves possibility of a speedy performance.

    Hi Gary,

    As you well know, one of the first things young kids look for in a band piece is "where do I have the melody?". You do a really nice job passing the tune around in this, which should please just about everyone in the band; not easy to do! Really nice arrangement on a tune I don't believe I've ever heard. Thanks for posting this!

    Thanks for listening, Danny.
    In the past four plus years of composing and becoming more aware of what I had already heard from composers of all periods. I find the most signifigant
    goal for a composer is to offer contrast.
    Baroque composers used the CONCERTO GROSSO: small group-large group. Compositions followed fast-slow-fast formulae or similar.
    I attempt to couple various instrument combinations; small groups versus tutti; woodwind vs brass, etc. to create new contrasts.

    Thanks for listening, Raymond.

    Well thought-through arrangement for young players,
    Gary -- with everybody getting a shot at the thematic
    material. To me, it sounds like it would not be
    overly challenging, as well.

    My best,
