Commissioned, in 1990, by Bedford Modern School for their Christmas wind band concerts,¬†Christmas Express¬†soon became a firm favourite and later no more so than with the wind band of St Peter’s School, York.

It describes a train, merrily rattling along on Christmas Eve passing by, amongst others, Wenceslas Castle, a skating party, a harbour and a cathedral before hurtling into the terminus.

Skillfully scored for any combination of Bb and C instruments and with optional parts for piano and a whistle tooting guard. Great fun!
