(Moore/Swingle) (Level 3) SATB and Brass Quintet. This setting of Moore's famous poem was originally written for the Swingle Singers and the Canadian Brass. So that my singing group could perform this work in their own concerts, I transcribed the original version into a version for two SATB choirs. One choir sings the melodic setting of Moore's poem while the other group sings brief quotations from various carols. The original version has been recorded by the Canadian Brass and the Elmer Iseler Singers on their "Christmas Album.".
