494: March - The angels' song (Alan Williams)
This imposing and energetic march is a welcome addition to the Christmas concert repertoire.
495: Christmas Rocks! (Mark Feltwell)
This exciting work takes the form of a mini-overture and is an ideal opening for Christmas concerts. It features four well-known carols: Unto us a boy is born (C.C. 97); Three kings' march (C.C. 96); While shepherds watched (C.C. 105); Hark! the herald angels sing (C.C. 38).
496: Meditation on 'Beechwood' (Kenneth Downie)
This wistful arrangement of the hymn tune brings a spirit of wonder at God's love for us.
497: Marching in the light (Ralph Pearce)
A march in all but name, this piece is based on the popular South African traditional hymn We are marching in the light of God (S.A.S.B. 903) with references to Come, join our army, to battle we go (S.A.S.B. 949).
