Messiah Christmas Suite composed by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759). Arranged by Thomas Fettke. For SATB choir, solo voice, piano (with optional orchestration (instrumental accompaniment)). Sacred Anthem, Christmas. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4116L).
This anthem is an inventive, glorious arrangement of six choruses and one solo from Handel's "Messiah." Certain to whet the masterwork appetites of choir and listener alike, it is ideal for Christmas worship and concerts. While fantastically accompanied by keyboard alone, optional orchestra or instrumental ensemble is also available. (From the cantata "A Great and Mighty Wonder" SATB--65/1970L; SAB--65/1971L.).
