As With Gladness (Men of Old) Concert Band Score and Parts with Optional Piano and Strings PDF
The music to the Christmas carol ’As with gladness men of old’ was composed by the German musician Conrad Kocher (1786-1872). Kocher was well travelled and visited Russia and Italy. He established the School of Sacred Music at Stuttgart in 1821. The words and lyrics of the Christmas Carol ’As with gladness men of old’ were written by William C. Dix in 1867.
This is a fairly straight forward arrangement of this carol for concert band and has been designed to give each instrument an interesting part to play with a number of different groups playing the melody and accompaniment. It should work well with choir or congregational singing the traditional words.
