Sacred Anthem, Christmas.
Enthusiasm permeates this arrangement of the well-known Christmas hymn inviting children one and all to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Easy to learn and memorize, the anthem's A section presents the familiar text and tune while the B section introduces new words and music. The two sections then have the option to combine to create a fun-to-sing partner song in the anthem's final section. Repetition in the optional instrumental parts makes them easy to learn and play for children of all ages.
