A great holiday concert centerpiece. This piece combines two carols from the European region of Burgundy, historically situated in modern-day France and Switzerland. Familiar tunes, Sing We Now of Christmas and Pat-a-Pan are characterized by their simple melodies and similar modal harmonies. Sounds of the past and of the present are woven together in this lively fantasia.
Two Burgundian Carols was composed in 2008 for Jerry Junkin and the Dallas Wind Symphony.
