Christ the Light
Derek created this beautiful arrangement based on two 16th Century Russian carols. It is melodic and filled with expression throughout with the addition of handchimes adding a rich texture. Time signatures vary between 4/4 and 3/4 with several ritards and "a tempo" sections. One or all of the optional instruments may be added as you choose. Although it is based on a Christmas carol, this work could be used any time – in worship or in concert with the alternate title Winter Light. 75 measures.
