    We just performed this at our Christmas Concert. It was well received by the audience and the choir. It's a great little piece. Has a short a capella section, features alternating men's and women's voices, and has staggered entrances and rhythms during the refrain. The version we...

    performed is SATBB (there's an added Baritone part on the refrain that isn't especially high - it's well within the range of most any Bass). The key is a little awkward for your accompanist (Gb!), but we performed this with the string, flute, and oboe accompaniment, and they didn't seem to care. As with most John Rutter pieces, the accompaniment sheet music is handwritten. Not bad, just a weird quirk.

    It's the kind of Christmas song that evokes that feeling of nostalgia and longing anticipation of the joyous season. It is an ideal piece to sing on Christmas Eve worship service! Kudos again to the musical genius that is John Rutter.

  • January 28, 2009 best christmas song ever

    Beautiful arrangement. Very easy sections, one a capella section. SATTB, but the tenor part can be sung by altos, fairly high. Really not hard for school chorus.

    Candlelight Carol is a beautiful song, but this particular arrangement is quite difficult. I had to cut numerous parts out to make it singable for our school Christmas concert. It would be nice to see it in a different key, one that is not as high would be wonderful.

    You can't ever go wrong with John Rutter it seems! The melodies are lush and tender...most successful with skilled singers.
