    My community chorale loves this piece, as I knew they would. It gives our musician a chance to shine and the voice parts are easy and graceful. Nice to find something fresh for our Christmas concerts.

    I had the priviledge of singing "The First Noel / Pachelbel's Canon" in a SAT trio many years ago, and I've never forgotten the heart-stirring beauty of this wonderful arrangement.

  • December 21, 2009 perfect for church christmas service

    Our church choir performed this today--absolutely lovely. Mixed ability, 16-18 members, a few weeks to learn, one pianist, one organist--yes, 16th notes were doable! Piano/organ was nice combination. Only problem: choir gets mesmerized by the beauty of the first several measures of the canon and forgets...

    to come in!

  • January 09, 2009 Absolutely Beatiful Piece!

    I directed a choir of about 30-40 people singing this piece, and it was absolutely amazing. We had two boys (ages 11 and 13) play the violin part, and I can't explain how beautifully it came together. It was the highlight of the entire evening.
