Every year I struggle with finding new and creative ways to arrange music for holiday concerts. It is always fun to try and find a new way to musically link two tunes together in an interesting way. Well, this arrangement is the result. It combines the famous Gustav Holst chorale In the Bleak Midwinter with the popular Christmas carol Angels We Have Heard on High. This work is certainly playable alone, but it has been designed to also be playable with a choral setting of the piece, and can also work together with the band version of this arrangement.
