Hark! The Herald Angels SingBy Felix Mendelssohn / arr. David Marlatt Brass Quintet Score & Parts Level: Medium-Difficult Item: 81-BQ18478
This carol first appeared in 1739 written by Charles Wesley. However, this is not the version that we all know and love today. The original was slow and solemn! This arrangement opens joyfully with a 3+3+2 rhythmic figure before moving into the main statement of the theme. There is an ornamented descant floating the theme to bring the work to a close.
