O Come All Ye Faithful (vers. 1)

O Come All Ye Faithful (“Adeste Fideles”) (arr. May 2008) is an arrangement for orchestra and vocalist that features a more formal and traditional approach to the popular 1841 English hymn. Using a generally speaking, lush orchestration and very frequent disparate and contrasting color timbres throughout the orchestra.  It is a wonderful addition to any concert for singers in the keys of Bb major and later modulating to C major.
