Symphonic Prelude on Adeste Fidelis

Claude T. Smith

 

Symphonic Prelude on Adeste Fidelis The latin hymn we know as “O Come All Ye Faithful” was used in France and England as long ago as 1797. It invites all believers to come to Bethlehem to worship the newborn savior.

Arranger Claude T. Smith (1932-1987) was born in Missouri. He attended Central Methodist College and graduated from the University of Kansas. He played French Horn in an Army band and taught before becoming a composer. He composed over 120 works for band, chorus, orchestra and small ensembles.
