Available for Purchase at: https://music.saconnects.org/product/abj89/
It is once again our pleasure to release the next edition of the Christmas American Band Journal and present four new pieces that can be used during the holiday season. Christmas, and the story of Jesus’ birth is the greatest story ever told and we hope and pray that this music will help in telling that great story while sharing the love of Christ in a new and profound way.
The 2022 Christmas edition of the American Band Journal will add some wonderful repertoire to our collection and feature four accomplished composers. Beginning this journal is some new music from our friend Andrew Blyth and his new piece, Good ‘ol King Wenceslas! This fun new piece will certainly add to any Christmas program and have people dancing in the aisles in no time. Stephen Bulla is no stranger to the American Band Journal and his new work Star of Night will be a welcome addition to any worship service or concert program. Andrew Wainwright, making his American Band Journal debut, is featured in this edition with a new euphonium solo, Good Christian Men Rejoice. This will be a popular piece that provides soloists with an opportunity to present meaningful music during Christmas. Finishing off the edition is another debut composer, Yves Ramel. Merrily on High is another fun item that should quickly find a place in concerts all around the world. We are once again pleased to present a new collection of music that should be able to make an immediate impact. We are sure that this music will be a blessing to all the listeners and players and will add immeasurably to your music ministry during the Christmas season.
