  • Hark! The Herald Angels Sing for Brass Ensemble with Optional Percussion

    A selection of 24 carols for background music, Christmas concert encores, or sing-alongs. The idea is to dispense with intros, bridges, or codas – just decide how many times to play through a carol (usually 2-3) and pass out the lyrics!
