Description

Edmund Sears wrote the poem “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear” in Wayland, Massachusetts in 1849. The following year, he commissioned Richard S. Willis, a former student of Felix Mendelssohn, to set the poem to a melody. The melody, originally titled “Carol”, became popular throughout the United States. This setting for brass quintet reimagines the famous melody as a swing arrangement.
