Come to Bethlehem: Five Carols for Choir and Orff Instruments (5 Carols for Choir and Orff Instruments). By Michael Burkhardt. For unison treble voices or 2-part or 3-part treble voices, optional descants, Orff instruments, percussion, handbells or handchimes. Christmas. Easy to Moderately Easy. Score (spiral bound). Scripture: Luke 2. 91 pages. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (MN.50-1120).

This set was designed with study guides for each of the five pieces, to be used in teaching them to children's choirs. With the creativity of the included Orff and percussion parts, handbells or handchimes may be substituted for some Orff instruments, they are similar to other pieces by Michael Burkhardt that require limited rehearsal time or reduced number of singers.
The carols included are:
He Is Born
Whence Comes this Rush of Wings
Come to Bethlehem with Me
On December Five and Twenty
