French Carol, arr., with new words, by Jay Althouse.

A new TTBB edition of an arrangement that's become a Christmas tradition for many choirs. It's actually a fanfare (with optional brass quintet and snare drum) featuring new secular words set to the majestic French carol. Includes a brief contrapuntal passage which contrasts with a slower, homophonic section.

    Last December I organized a 20 song concert for a mixture of 6 choirs. My men's group sang this song, and was by far, the most fun to perform and the group enjoyed the sound. We used a brass group from another church to play along with our singing...

    . Music for all parts are there, and pretty easy to get both groups timed together. I HIGHLY recommend this song for groups that want an upbeat song in your concert. It'll get some toes a tappin.

    If you're looking for a holiday piece that doesn't specifically mention Christmas, this might be good for you. If you're looking for a better arrangement with the actual Christmas lyrics, go with the Helvey men's chorus arrangement.
