Fantasy on "Wassail Song" for Band

Douglas Townsend

About this work:
World premiered by the Allentown Band as an encore on December 16, 2006, at Symphony Hall in Allentown, PA, Ronald Demkee conducting. Not an arrangement, but a true fantasy with a lively fugue. Most recently performed by the SUNY Orange Symphonic Band, Kevin Scott conducting, on 12/5/10 at the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Monroe, NY, and on 12/11/10 at the Paramount Theatre in Middletown, NY. (The work was performed as part of a suite of three of my Christmas Carol fantasies, including fantasies on Silent Night and God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen.)
