This triumphant arrangement by Mark Hayes is exciting from start to finish. Its full marcato singing has a remarkable impact in performance, and the addition of Hayes' optional SoundPax instrumental parts or SoundTrax CD raises the bar for seasonal concert features. Dramatic "ahs" symbolize the arrival of royalty, and the high range descant evokes images of an angelic chorus above.
SoundPax includes parts for fl./picc., ob., cl., 2 tpt., Fr. horn, tbn., bs. tbn., perc.
