An accomplished choir can make easy work of this, but it's harder than it looks. There are unexpected variations, especially after the key change. Having sung it in my choir at church I recalled that it was fairly easy, but introducing it to my amateur chorus, we quickly got bogged down.

A joyous celebration of the birth of Christ!
One of the most trusted names in choral composition, John Rutter has again shown his God-given musical gifts through his beautiful song 'Angels' Carol'. I decided to use a harp accompanist which added to the loveliness of the song. For my choir of 50 this was a stretch since we have beginners to advanced choral singers. Fortunately they did a good job, although for some reason going flat at the end of the song became a habit during rehearsal which filled me with fear for our then upcoming Christmas Concert. I highly recommend 'Angels' Carol' for intermediate to advanced choirs.

No Sweeter Music than this!
A stunningly beautiful work yet again from John Rutter. I first heard this in school many years ago and now decided to bring it into my own choir. It's pretty, it's lively and will be the cream of any concert!
