Have You Heard? (A Christmas Spiritual) by Jay Althouse. Choir Secular. Men's Choir. Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Christmas; Spiritual; Winter. Choral Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.16285).
"Have you heard the story of the baby boy, born in Bethlehem?" From that simple question Jay Althouse has crafted another superb, original Christmas spiritual. It features contrasting dynamics (excellent for teaching phrasing), male and female solos, and a tender middle section which contrasts with the hushed excitement of the opening and closing melody. Includes a descant on the final chorus. A cappella.
