Christmas Intrada

Program Notes:

This vibrant work by San Francisco-based composer David Conte is based on the familiar tunes Ding-Dong, Merrily on High, Angels from the Realms of Glory, Von Himmel hoch, and Sussex Carol.

Conductor Notes:

This is a vibrant and energetic medley of traditional carols for treble choir and organ. I used this to close the first half of a concert in which we had a guest children’s choir. To make it simpler for them to learn, I assigned them to certain sections only, and had Elektra cover the hardest parts. The organ part is challenging.
