The First Noel (vers. 2)

The First Nöel  (orch. October 2011) is an orchestral arrangement for singer and orchestra decorated with full symphonic somber and beautiful tones with a magic and impressionistic undertone.  Ideal for a small chamber orchestra, the orchestration supports the singer, especially written for young voices in mind, with doublings of the melody  and occasional flourishes with warm, full tutti echoes and answers.  In the key of Eb major, this delicate and passionate arrangement makes the simple 3/4 carol a lush and tender version of this holiday classic public domain carol.
