'This is a highly enjoyable and superbly performed Christmas collection. It respects the traditions of Christmas music but provides plenty of examples of how composers are developing that tradition in exciting ways' (MusicWeb International)
Peter Tranchell originally scored his celebratory People, look East (1982) for alto, tenor and bass, but it was later arranged with a treble line by Peter Marchbank. It’s a great fun piece, full of syncopations and changing time signatures, and with a melody full of unexpected twists and turns. The organ part is particularly delightful, strongly reminiscent of light music, and finishing with a humorous cascade of chromatic figures.
