Tidings of Comfort and Joy!
Based on "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen"
Traditional English Carol / arr. Michael Story
Belwin Young Band
Based on the popular English carol "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen," this very musical holiday arrangement will reinforce legato technique and consistent ensemble phrasing while ushering in the joyous holiday season with musical glee. Opening with a clear unison statement and slowly adding textures and harmonic voices, the work develops to a joyous tutti statement that continues to build in intensity to a glorious conclusion.
