Christmas. After initially introducing the theme in a mere "cloud of sound", the piece, then, starts off in a Cajun/New Orleans groove. All the voices have their solo spots. More and more independent voices join in falling into the groove and, thus, intensifying the tune: The woodwind family is in high Christmas spirits. Shortly after the climax - Is it the turkey or the presents? - the festivities are concluded in a short and classical manner. But, wait! It is a little musical joke that finally rounds the evening off. Optional bass clarinet as substitute for bassoon. For standard wind quintet. Score & parts.
