A White Winter Holiday of Carols: A Medley of 7 Carols (No. #2) with SATB Chorus

A White Winter Holiday of Carols: A Medley of Christmas Carols (orch. Aug. 2013-April 2014) is an orchestrated medley of all public domain Christmas carols featuring seven songs for SATB choir and full symphonic orchestra.  The orchestrations range from a bright collection of sparkling and dazzling cheerful tunes such as Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells that use big, sweeping orchestral interludes to the beautiful and ephemeral delicate songs of Away In a Manger and O Little Town of Bethlehem using soloistic instruments and fluid runs in Harp, Percussion and delicato String timbres.  This collection is a remarkable addition to the canon of Christmas carols for choir and orchestra.  The songs included are: 

1. Deck the Halls
2. Away in a Manger
3. Pat-A-Pan
4. Hark the Herald Angels Sing
5. O Little Town of Bethlehem
6. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
7. Jingle Bells
