May this Christmas season have lot of music

This year the traditions, the festivities… are once again enjoyed with family, in groups of friends, in instrumental groups and choirs, and music will be a key element.

We present different Christmas proposals, for instrumental formations, for orchestra, cobla, as well as for children’s choir, mixed choir …

The Song of the birds (Cant dels ocells) is perhaps one of the most well-known melodies in the traditional repertoire and it is performed in many ocasions, although it is a carol. You can find it in the harmonization that Salvador Brotons has made for guitar, as well as Pascual Martínez’s version for melodic instrument and piano.

Nadales catalanes (Catalan Christmas Carols), Op.76 by Salvador Brotons is one of the most performed Christmas suites during this season, you will find it in various versions for orchestra, symphonic band, mixed choir and orchestra (or piano), children’s choir and orchestra (or piano) or even for tenor (trumpet or clarinet) and organ.

For mixed choir, it is necessary to emphasize the 2 works of the director and composer Xavier García Cardona, its harmonization with airs of jazz of “El Desembre congelat” (Frozen December) and its beautiful “O Magnum Mysterium”.

For children’s choirs, you can choose and mix the carol songs of the Catalan composers Josep Marimón and Agustí Cohí Grau, with harmonizations and compositions for one, two or three voices, as well as the suite “Nadales catalanes” by Salvador Brotons.

In the cobla repertoire we present the “Rapsòdia de Nadal”, by Fèlix Martínez Comín and the sardana “Estels de Nadal” by his wife Pepita Llunell.

We also want to recommend Dan Turcanu’s arrangements of the International Christmas Carols for different formations and also for solo instruments. Many of the pieces are fantastic ideas for instrument classes and concerts during this Christmas season. Here is a link to his works:
