A Yuletide Flourish



Based on O Tannenbaum, you could call it “Ta-Da! Baum”

Cheesy synth rendition (trust me- it works!)


A YULETIDE FLOURISH was originally composed in 1995 under the title, A HANNAFORD CHRISTMAS FLOURISH for the Hannaford Street Silver Band and was subsequently recorded on their Christmas CD, A Christmas Flourish (CBC Records SMCD 5175) with guest conductor James Curnow.
In 2009, I rescored the piece for brass quintet and organ. Its musical material is based upon the traditional German carol, O Tannenbaum.

Performance Notes:
My intention was to create a short fanfare, lasting under 1 minute, to announce the entrance of the Master of Ceremonies of the Christmas concert, or perhaps to reassemble the audience after the intermission.

Duration: 0:40
