    Knowing (as we all do) that tMPers can provide the answer to just about any question... :clap:

    What is the piece of choral music that is currently being used on the Film 4 Christmas films trailer? A spoof version is also being used on the Garmin sat-nav adverts.

    I feel like I should know it but I am drawing a total blank! :oops:

    Is this the advert that uses Savatages' Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24? In which case it is Carol of the Bells and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

    It is indeed - traditional Ukrainian carol apparently.

    We are playing a good arrangement of it at the moment. In this one it is called Ukrainian bell carol.

    On a similar topic, does anyone know the origin of the music being used in the Xmas advert for John Lewis department store - the one where they make a shadow picture of a woman & dog by stacking up various items?

    Carol of the Bells by Trans-siberian orchestra

    I do soo love the heavy rock version of Carol of the Bells by Trans-siberian orchestra, as used on youtube clips of Christmas lights. An arrangement of this would be an interesting finale to a carol concert ;)

    And no-one's ever answered the question put on here many years ago: does anyone know what the sort of French/Classical/Jazz type piece is that's used on the Toblerone ads is? Think of Shostakovich Jazz Suites but played with small jazz band rather than an orchestra.

    - what theme is used in the advert? Is it the one with the woman in the boat?

    Would make an excellent ending to, lets say the 1st half of a concert:clap:

    would love to have a crack at playing a brass band version:tup:biggrin:

    That's the one. With the rather sticky bees flying around.
