SEASONS GREETINGS

by Jack Stamp


Seasons Greetings premiered by the IUP combined bands in December, 2011. The

composer writes:


        Seasons Greetings was my attempt to add new music to the current band

        holiday repertoire, in a somewhat contemporary style. Looking for public

        domain works, I settled on "I Saw Three Ships," "Once in Royal David's

        City," and "Infant Holy, Infant Lowly." The setting exploits the rhythmic,

        harmonic and structural settings found in my original concert band works,

        now available in a holiday setting.
