If you are looking for a grand closer for your Christmas concerts, this short yet climactic arrangement fits the bill. Following the tutti opening, the main theme enters simply stated as a quartet with one player per part on the upper four voices. Players join as the initial theme builds to a transition and key change mid-piece, now in a broader fashion, it blooms into its grandiose conclusion.
