The Holly and the Ivy (vers. 2)

The Holly and the Ivy (arr. October 2013) is another arrangement of the popular 3/4 public domain favorite carol.  Only 8-bars in length, this particularly challenging tune was hard to arranged to maintain interest, but here through a variety of orchestral interludes, key changes and varying tessitura coupled with a wide diversity of orchestrational changes make this arrangement an interesting and compelling beautiful new coherent and satisfying piece of music for orchestra and optional vocalist.
