This arrangement showcases two beautiful English carols in an easy-to-play arrangement for your young band. "In the Bleak Midwinter," a tune written by Gustav Holst, begins this medley in classic style. Opportunities abound for working on legato phrasing. The lively traditional carol "The Holly and the Ivy" follows in 3/4 time to bring this work to an engaging close. This arrangement is correlated with Accent on Achievement, Book 1, page 30.
