Christmas Intrada, A
A Christmas Intrada portrays five contrasting moods associated with the festivities of the season. They are: Fanfare: Christus Natus Est for brass, chimes, bells and percussion; Lullaby For The Christ Child by woodwinds; Processional For The Kings and Shepherds played by all; Carol For The Holy Night for woodwinds, saxophones and muted brass; and finally Wassail and Alleluia which brings the entire work to a joyous and triumphant conclusion.
