The First Noel (Anon.)

The First Noel (Anon.)

from 34.95

The 2nd Noël as arranged by Prokofiev? Lots of mid-scale key changes (sans clutch) make this a solid programming choice.

The original theme had a kind of "Peter And The Wolf" feel to it. I could almost imagine a new animal entering Peter's garden. I therefore decided to inject a little Prokofiev with mid-melody key changes (measure 29 and other spots). This certainly had the most original content of any of my arrangements to date. This composition needs help from the performer to keep the running eighth notes from getting monotonous by copious use of dynamics and small nuances. I didn't want to inject my own editing with lots of dynamics, so feel free to invent.
