Arranger Jason Krug

"Pat-a-Pan" is a French carol that tells the Christmas story from the perspective of shepherds out in the field playing simple instruments. This creative arrangement captures the feel of a flute and drum reverently played on a starlit night, beginning with a rhythmic drone in the low strings imitating a hypnotic drum beat. Gorgeous countermelodies and some fantasia-like writing give further depth to this fine arrangement, and the dissonant ending fades to a final haunting chord.
