"Soulful" is the word for this extraordinary arrangement, which imbues the beloved carol (by Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber) with a bluesy feeling. This is done so tastefully that the melody stays true to the original, while the accompaniment cradles the voices in a slowly rocking texture with blues-derived harmonic touches. Perfect for church choirs as well as more informal vocal jazz ensembles, this piece is absolutely gorgeous!
