Christmas Processional

An effective opener to any Christmas concert, based on the French carol, ?Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella?. It tells the story of a group of children in medieval Provence, dressed up as shepherds and milkmaids, carrying torches and candles as they proceed to the stable. As they draw closer and their excitement increases, they are constantly reminded by their parents to keep the noise down so that they don't wake up the baby Jesus. The music begins quietly and builds to a majestic conclusion.

'If I were still conducting bands regularly, this would certainly be on my list as a Christmas concert opener - it sets the energy and mood most effectively. The scoring is terrific.' Paul Hindmarsh, British Bandsman magazine PDFs available from the Shop section of this website. Sheet music version is available exclusively from R Smith & Company.
