Arranger Pierre La Plante has taken two traditional melodies from the Catalonian (northeastern) region of Spain: "Carol of the Birds" and "On Christmas Eve".
Catalonia boasts a long and varied history of music and music making, and from this music the arranger has tapped into a deep well of inspiration to create this rich and very musical setting for strings. The piece offers a great opportunity for expressive playing, phrasing, and exercising one's musicality without having to drill too much on technical difficulty.
This fabulous setting will work well on a seasonal concert, or as a festival selection.
