This was originally written in 1986 as a much longer wind ensemble piece for the Cardiff Festival of Music as pre-concert entertainment in the foyer of St David's Hall, Cardiff.
Traditional Christmas music is combined, re-harmonised and given a twist as in the mixing of a cocktail. Sometimes, the bartender may have sampled a little too much of the product!
This, condensed, version for brass band was made in 2019.
