Christmas Can Begin composed by Ruth Elaine Schram. For Choral (SSA). Shawnee Press. 8 pages. Shawnee Press #B0629. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35003641).
This gorgeous original ballad by Ruth Elaine Schram beckons back to a time of innocence and beauty during the holiday season that is sometimes forgotten in the rush of the commercialism of today. Dreams, snow, packages with bows... “when all the lights are out and children are in bed, when dreamy visions dance inside each sleepy little head, when everyone's tucked in, Christmas can begin.” This is an elegant choral with a gentle piano accompaniment and delicate harmonies.
