O Holy Night
arr. Robert W. Smith
- Alfred Publishing Belwin Division
This is just gorgeous! Everyone knows this familiar carol, so Robert W. Smith plays expertly with the audience's expectations! He changes it just enough that you can't help but be enthralled from start to finish! There's a very effective "grand pause" and nice dramatic buildup to the climactic close. Although playable by string orchestra alone, the full orchestra version makes wonderful use of all of your players. A perfect holiday choice!
