(O Come, All Ye Faithful)

Set primarily in a march-like style with a more lyrical song-like interlude, McIvor's brass quintet arrangement of Adeste Fidelis ('O Come, All Ye Faithful') is perfect for both sacred and secular performances at Christmas time!

Program Notes

This setting of Adeste Fidelis ('O Come, All Ye Faithful') includes parts for C and B-flat trumpets as well as an optional flugelhorn part that is interchangeable with the horn part. The opening should be played in a heroic style. From measures 33-35, the tempo slows into a more lyrical, song-like style, which lasts through measure 53. The 1st trumpet pickup into measure 54 signals a return to the opening march-like style. From here, it should sound like a gradual build to the triumphant end... It’s Christmas!
