Hark! The Herald Angels Sing is a staple of the Christmas repertoire. This close-harmony arrangement, penned for the Kensington Brass Christmas Extravaganza series of 2012-14, proved an effective change of mood with soloistic lines and close harmonies unexpected for this usually rousing Carol. It displays any ensemble’s beautiful blend of sound and acts as a lighter blow in a larger programme for stamina purposes. It can also act as a background item before or during a Christmas time event. Find the Quintet version of this arrangement here.
