Here's the arrangement your audience will be talking about! These two holiday hits flow together so naturally, they seem made to be together! Set in A minor, the music begins with a dramatic build-up into the Carol of the Bells. The repetitive motive is given to violas and seconds while first violins play a quieter pizzicato that matches the descending bass line in the low strings. Suddenly and without fanfare, the Greensleeves melody arrives, being played by the celli. From this point on the two Christmas favorites intertwine in surprising and creative ways, each making the other more appealing!
