Here's something new! Sax Quartets get together with your neighbourhood Clarinet Quartet and enjoy this arrangement of Handel's 'Hallelujah Chorus' this Christmas. The saxes have the vocal parts and the clarinets play the orchestral reduction so some attention is needed with balance. I've also dropped the key from D major to Bb major to capture the better tonalities of the instruments. It could be a bit low for a SATB choir to sing along with but it stands alone as great orchestral piece for your Christmas programme. Enjoy!
