This festive piece presents three holiday favorites in a march medley. "O Tannenbaum" is treated with energetic countermelodies in the trombones and baritone. A short transition leads to a light presentation of the countermelody to "Good King Wenceslas" by a solo flute, clarinet and drum. Another transition and modulation leads to the trio-type section of "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day." An accelerando is followed by a dynamic closing section with the active woodwind countermelodies highlighting the exciting finish.
