Anderson (arr. Johnston) - A Christmas Festival (Clarinet Choir) - CC1
This arrangement of Leroy Anderson's Christmas medley masterpiece "A Christmas Festival" consists of eight familiar carols: Joy to the World; God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen; Good King Wenceslaus; Hark, The Herald Angels Sing; The First Noel; Silent Night; Jingle Bells; and O Come, All Ye Faithful (Adeste Fideles). Scored for clarinet choir with many additional percussion parts, as well as parts for harp and organ. These parts are all optional, but do add lots of color and texture if used!
