This suite of Carols is rearranged for jazz sextet and choir "using unexpected dissonances that resolve into surprising harmonies, drawing us into a new world within the Christmas sphere of music'.
First performed by Cantamus Choir and GBH Small Band in December 2006 at the Wiltshire Music Centre to a capacity audience of 300. A revised version was performed in 2017 and included a 17 piece Big Band to enhance 5 of the carols.
Other carols that have been performed in isolation with just piano are In the bleak mid winter (SSA) and Tomorrow shall be my dancing day
Silent Night is scored for:
SATB CHOIR + male and female soloists
Instrumental soloists (and optional Big Band)

All the music is fully scored on Sibelius and available to use, including (used) copies from the last event. PDF's can be provided.
