A Celebration of Christmas

arr. Floyd Werle

 

Nine of the most loved Christmas carols are woven into this medley. Scored with interesting melodic and rhythmic combinations, the blending of tone colors and textures makes this work a warm, pleasurable experience for the Christmas season. Selections include: “Joy to the World”; “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”; “O Come, All Ye Faithful”; “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”; “Good Christian Men Rejoice”; “Angels We Have Heard on High”; “The First Noel”; “Silent Night”; and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”.

Floyd Werle, arranger, is a native of Billings, Montana. He attended the University of Michigan. He served as Chief Arranger of the United States Air Force Band and the Singing Sergeants for 32 years.
