Since first hearing John Rutter’s orchestration of Stuart Nicholson’s adaptation of this piece, I have wanted to bring it to the repertoire of the Concert/Wind Band. It is written for combined Concert Band and Chorus, but may be performed by Band alone. The choral part is shown in the conductor’s score, but is not a part of the download or printed parts. The arrangement is compatible with the published SATB choral version No. 14041396 by Novello, and may be purchased from Hal Leonard Corp. or through www.musicdispatch.com. This is the “happiest” and most joyful presentation of the 16th-century French carol that will delight your audience and band alike!
