Review quote

Operating on the Bolero principle of a quasi-ostinato growing inexorably to a massive climax, the arrangement gives a vivid picture of a procession starting out in the distance, and getting closer and closer 'to bring the world a newborn King!'. The little French carol on which it is based has grown into a pageant. The Organ, November 07 If you are looking for a show-stopper for your Christmas concert, look no further... This straightforward and tuneful piece would bring down the curtain with a veritable whoosh of Christmas spirit - and no tinsel or snow to be seen. Well worth pursuing. * Music Teacher, Oct 07 *show more
