'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Is perhaps one of the most well-known verses in English literature. Its original title is "A Visit from Saint Nicholas", it was written by either Clement Clarke Moore or Henry Livingston, Jr., and published in 1823.
This wonderful adaptation by composer Anthony DiLorenzo mixes familiar styles and tunes with original material. This version is for Brass Quintet and Narrator, but it also available for full Orchestra with Narrator, Brass Ensemble, Organ, and Narrator, or Brass Band, Narrator and optional Organ. It is a perfect fit for any holiday concert, and may well begin a new traditional with your ensemble!
