"Carol of the Bells"

This setting of "Carol of the Bells" is a fast and exciting rendition that does not follow the standard outline of the tune. A very unique arrangement that uses modern compositional techniques like tone clusters and changing rhythmic patterns, it will let your brass band shine! Although the percussion plays a prominent role, it can be performed easily by three players. The many dissonances and extreme dynamic changes will keep the audience on edge to the end.
