Choral Arts Ensemble, Rochester MN (1998-99)
R&R Chair Community Choirs
Courtney has crammed the “Twelve Days of Christmas” melody into a variety of styles and pre-existing pieces from plainchant through Vivaldi’s Gloria, Wagner’s Die Walkure, a Strauss waltz, the Nutcracker, and even Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever. It is an easy piece that is fun for singers and audience.
