From the Christmas Oratorio. An amazing piece of intertwining lines and duet figures that make this work especially fun for both the players and the audience. Carefully edited with particular care to articulation and phrasing.
ITG Journal, January 2023, page 71:
(Because of Olcott's writing)...it is no surprise that this edition is of excellent quality with several editorial decisions that elevate the piece.
This piece features some intricate lines, often in sixteenth notes and very often in duets within the ensemble. From an arrangement perspective, the lines lend themselves well to the trumpet. ...great care in creating suggested articulations for the ensemble...
