Album Notes
This album provides the listener with holiday tunes both new and old; from an arrangement of Gaetano Schiassi's 18th-century Christmas Pastorale to Joseph Turrin's and Gloria Nissenson's creative 2007 re-telling of Hans Christian Andersen's 1845 fairy tale, The Fir Tree, scored for double brass quintet, percussion, narrator, and soprano.

The Compass Rose Brass Ensemble is a ten-piece brass group, a format made popular by trumpeter Philip Jones over a half-century ago. The instrumentation is four trumpets, horn, four trombones, and tuba, with the occassional addition of percussion and additional brass. The CRBE performs in both classical and jazz mediums, with particular interest in new and creative compositions.

The ensemble is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is led by trumpeter Larry Prescott.
