Joseph T. Spaniola’s arrangement of J. S. Bach’s Jauchzet, Frohlocket! (Christmas Oratorio, BWV 248 I) is on DASHING VOL II (Navona Records), a festive assortment of new classical and jazz arrangements and composition inspired by staples of the holiday season. Spaniola’s music was written for organist Joseph Galema — music director and academy organist at the U.S. Air Force Academy (1982-2014) — and members of Stellar Brass. The work was recorded in the Protestant Chapel of the iconic U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel and utilizes the chapel’s M.P. Möller (Opus 9480, 1963) organ.
