As some of you may have noticed, I hate playing christmas carols, especially naff arrangements. Just wondered what the general opinion is on how a concert programme should be made up.
Tenor-Steffen-DK said:. What about "Gaudete" by Kevin Norbury. Is that a christmas song? It's on the new YBS christmas cd, and last year we also played it at a christmas concert. But I cannot see the christmas in it
PeterBale said:Kevin Norbury's arrangement of "Gaudete" actually includes three old carols. "Gaudete" itself is latin for "Rejoice" and the words go on to tell how Jesus has been born of the Virgin Mary.
