Paraphrase sur des airs de Noël

François Morel

1926 – 2018

While each country has its own holiday traditions, music is used everywhere to express the elation of the holiday period. Often of ancient origin, Christmas carols remain an inexhaustible source of inspiration for composers: variations, masses and musical paraphrases, like the one François Morel wrote in 1947. This Paraphrase sur des airs de Noël brings together several well-known carols skillfully arranged by the Quebec composer.
