Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Composed by Felix Mendelssohn, Words by Charles Wesley

Arranged by Ben Patterson

A Christmas epic, not for the faint of heart.  This new twist on the old holiday favorite starts off as a medium fast swing with solo space for trumpet and trombone.  Post-solo melodic development involving the whole band starts low and builds to a huge climactic finish that will leave the audience breathless (and the band too, probably.) [Instrumentation: 5 saxes, 8 brass, 4 rhythm]


This recording is from "A Holiday Note From Home" by The Airmen of Note.
