"O Holy Night" has been called the most popular Christmas solo song ever written. Calvin Custer artfully examines many of the fascinating tonal colors and sonorities available to today's orchestra with his treatment of this classic standard. Celebrate the season with this highly creative scoring that opens quietly and builds to one of the most amazing conclusions ever heard. Monumental!
In the full orchestra series, all material (except percussion) is covered in the string writing so the pieces can be performed in their entirety by a string orchestra, or by adding winds and percussion you can perform these works as a full orchestra.
