The Little Cradle Rocks arranged by and with new music by Jay Althouse. Choir Sacred. SATB choir. Choral (Sacred); Choral Octavo; Worship Resources. Church Choral Series. Christmas; Sacred; Winter. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.34815).
Jay Althouse brings a swinging jazz, calypso feel to the celebration of Christmas. The syncopated rhythms are natural and easy to learn. As is a signature trait in all his writing, Althouse leads us places we expect to go, but with a fresh appeal and exuberant accompaniment. The Holy Child's cradle will definitely rock with these fun sounds echoing in the sanctuary.
