Nigel Hess's bustling 6-minute work, A Christmas Overture, is an exciting new addition to the Christmas repertoire and a must for opening any seasonal concert. Originally commissioned for orchestra by John Rutter, this medley of Christmas classics is now a regular feature on concerts by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the City of London Sinfonia. The composer has arranged this work for concert band and is of medium level.
Ding Dong! Merrily on High * Deck the Halls * Il est ne le divin enfant * Infant Holy, Infant Lowly * Personent Hodie * We Wish You a Merry Christmas * Angels, from the Realms of Glory.
