This original Christmas spiritual will delight the congregation. Beginning with a bass ostinato line, the tenors join, and then the women enter in a rhythmic and energetic pattern. Including some divisi for the women, and an interesting key change, “Mary Sat A-Rockin'” explores the full range of dynamics and will be a memorable selection for Christmas.
