The Suite begins majestically with an Overture on JOY TO THE WORLD. The following movement is a meditation on WHAT CHILD IS THIS (Greensleeves). HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING presents its melody allegro giubiloso in fugal style. O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL (Adeste Fideles) is written in swing style, reminiscent of the blues. The fifth movement, O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM, has the theme wandering back and forth from Primo to Secondo on quiet solo stops. The virtuoso finale is a Toccata in French style THE FIRST NOWELL.
