*************************
The Orillia Silver Band is releasing a new Christmas CD at its Oct. 13, 2018 Benefit Concert for Hillcrest Lodge. The concert takes place at St. Paul’s Centre in Orillia starting at 7:30 p.m. 

Christmas Time is Here with the Orillia Silver Band was recorded last March at St. James’ Anglican Church in Orillia. The title track, from A Charlie Brown Christmas, was written by the great American jazz pianist, Vince Guaraldi. The CD features both new and classic Christmas works sure to be popular with a broad range of listeners.  

For fans of traditional holiday carols, An English Christmas by Philip Sparke and A Christmas Fantasy by Gordon Langford will appeal. 

The modern Christmas classic O Magnum Mysterium by Morten Lauridsen is included on the album. A towering classic for brass band at Christmas, The Kingdom Triumphant by Eric Ball, appears on the CD as well.

Other great holiday favourites on the CD include:

Overture - Proclamation of Christmas       Stephen Bulla
The Glorious Sounds of Christmas            Arr. Peter Preston
Shepherd's Pipe Carol                                 John Rutter; Arr. Peter Graham
Carol of the Bells                                        Arr. J. Aaron Stanley
We Wish You a Merry Christmas             John Rutter; Arr. Eric Wilson

The cover art, produced by Philip Jackman, features the tower and spire of St. James’ Anglican Church. The CD will be on sale at the concert for $15. The CD will also be available from these downtown outlets:

Manticore Books
Mariposa Market
Orillia Museum of Art & History

So plan to start your Christmas shopping early; it makes a great stocking-stuffer for music lovers.
