An imaginary journey by sleigh through Lapland at Christmas evoking the sights and sounds of the snowy northern land. Each section portrays a different aspect:
The sleigh begins its wintry journey through the Lapland countryside on Christmas Day.
The sleigh turns a corner to reveal breathtaking winter views over pine forests...
...and we round another bend to reveal ermine and reindeer gambolling in the snow.
We come to a church, bells pealing...and a brass band.
The Lapp folk are outside, celebrating Christmas...
...we round another bend and are treated to the majesty of the Northern Lights...
...there are flurries of snow...
....and as the sleigh-ride nears its end, we think back over the journey through the magnificent Lapland winter landscape.

A PACK includes a full score, string parts 4/4/3/4/2 and all wind, brass and percussion parts.
Duration 4½ minutes
