ARRANGER NOTES — Two classic holiday melodies are intertwined in this high energy and celebratory medley. I have chosen to call it an overture since melodic fragments from both carols appear and reappear throughout the piece. However, it may also be used during other parts of worship services as indicated above. Following the first six bars in the key of C major, there are seven modulations, although the keys are all relatively easy ones. In addition to the frequent key changes, this arrangement also features unique voicings of chords (watch the bass lines) and lots of syncopation. As always, listen to the demo MP3 if you have any ‘challenging’ spots… and enjoy!
