Christmas Hallelu by Jay Althouse. Choir Secular. 3-Part Mixed Choir (SAB). Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Christmas; Winter. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.21184).
This walking-tempo Christmas piece has a South African feel. It opens with one voice part singing a simple melody. One by one the other voices enter to create an exuberant carol. After a rhythmic interlude featuring an optional solo, the voices disappear in order until only the initial melody is silently heard. Drums can be added as an accompaniment, or use the exciting SoundTrax CD.
Recorded Acc. Available.
