Christmas Suite for full orchestra

1. Angels We Have Heard on High 2. What Child is This? 3. O Come, All Ye Faithful

Matthew C. Saunders (2014)


Christmas Suite (2014) for full orchestra for the Lakeland Civic Orchestra The three movements of this suite are intended to provide orchestras with “something more” in a carol arrangement—not simply a repetition of a well-known melody. Each arrangement includes a brief “development” section and introduction, and has been created to avoid “safe” scoring when appropriate. “Angels We Have Heard on High” features brilliant descant playing from the flutes and first violins. “What Child is This?” includes a bracing modulation, and intricate inner parts. “O Come, All Ye Faithful” includes quotations from “Lo, How a Rose Ere Blooming,” in recognition of Mentor, Ohio, the Rose City, where the first performance of this suite occurred, December 8, 2014, at the Great Lakes Mall, by the Lakeland Civic Orchestra with the composer conducting. Instrumentation: 2 Flutes 2 Oboes 2 Clarinets in B-flat 2 Bassoons 2 Horns in F (optionally doubled) 2 Trumpets in C 2 Tenor Trombones Bass Trombone Tuba Timpani Cymbals Violin I Violin II Viola Violoncello Contrabass Dr. Matthew C. Saunders has taught music from kindergarten to college in styles from madrigal to mariachi, and strives to make beautiful music for and with captivating people. He has climbed mountains, saved someone’s life, and watched the moon rise over the prairie. He has loved, lost, and loved again; helped friends find salvation, and found it for himself as well; taught genius students, and learned from genius teachers. His dreams are to walk on Mars, hear a grand piano fall into an orchestra pit, make more people laugh than cry, and love his wife Becky passionately and forever. He plays trombone and is always getting better at playing piano, and in the course of a long, love-filled, productive life, he wants to compose the Great American Symphony, ride the rails, hike the trails, read all of the good books, finally watch The Godfather, and storm the castles in the air. He will never write unlistenable music, stop stargazing or lose money in Vegas. He doesn’t call his mother often enough, but he still tries to do a good turn daily. He is always up for a few hands of euchre or a good game of chess, likely winning the former and losing the latter. Dr. Saunders is Associate Professor of Music and music department chair at Lakeland Community College, where he directs the Lakeland Civic Orchestra. He is on the web at www.martiandances.com, but the physical Dr. Saunders lives in Willowick, Ohio with his wife Becky and their children Noah and Melia. Contact Information: Matthew C. Saunders 257 East 286th Street Willowick, Ohio 44095 (580) 461-1617—matthew@martiandances.com www.martiandances.com
