Ancient Carol Fantasy (O Come, O Come, Emmanuel)

From Plank Road Publishing

by Paul Jennings

For Bucket Band, Rhythm Sticks, and Other Festive Instruments

This ethereal truly ancient carol – "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" – is not a song that is usually picked out for bucket band or other classroom instruments, but as we worked with rhythm patterns, we found that there were some great combinations to be found. Our ensemble, as written, includes a single bucket band part, rhythm sticks, sand blocks (or the Noodle Blocks in our new Noodle Kits™), rainstick, Boomwhackers®, and small triangle (or the nice sounding Chime Plate from our Noodle Kits™). Virtually all parts are optional, especially if you use the full recording. You will note that all three instruments in our new Noodle Kits™ can be used with this tune. To learn more about them, view the demo video at our web site where you can hear and see each instrument played.

Ask your players to play with seriousness, as this is a work that should be taken earnestly. Yes, it has an exuberant feel, but it should be played musically making effects more dramatic.
