Wassail Carol

SKU: FM1195 Category:


The Wassail Carol is an arrangement of a traditional Christmas Carol for Brass Quintet; 2 Trumpets in Bb, French Horn in F, Trombone and Tuba. Each instrument takes a verse as a solo and the arrangements reflect the lyrics of each verse, including a barking dog! The arrangement was commissioned by Denis Curlett and the Bournemouth Symphonic Brass, the brass ensemble of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. The Wassail winter festival was originally an ancient, pagan celebration in the UK. Peasants would take drinks and food at their feudal masters’ dwellings, drinking from a Wassail bowl which is similar to a punch bowl.
