We Wish You a Merry Christmas
(Concert Finale)

SATB Chorus [RBM-008] or
TTBB Chorus [RBM-008a]
with Orchestral or Piano Accompaniment

This arrangement of the familiar Christmas carol represents one movement of a much longer work titled A Feast of Carols [RBM-102]. The male-chorus version of this music is also available for purchase and is identical in terms of structure and key scheme.

The piece begins with a brief orchestral flourish, moves to a choral-orchestral statement of the carol that modulates to an orchestral arrangement of the melodic material. The piece closes with a majestic statement of the carol, in augmentation with decorative orchestral framing and a dynamic final chord sequence.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas
has successfully concluded many orchestral Christmas programs and is a favorite of audiences and musical forces, alike.
