    This is an absolutely beautiful arrangement of a well loved carol. The harmonies and contrasting dynamics are breathtaking. I would highly recommend this piece for your choir. I used this as a closing piece to a big Christmas program, it left a feeling of reverence and awe.

  • December 27, 2014 ABSOLUTELY GLORIOUS

    This is the most incredibly beautiful SATB arrangement of The First Noel that you will ever hear! I direct a small church choir (33 voices)...we started working on it in Sept and managed to have it learned by Christmas. The accompaniment was also a challenge for our pianist, but...

    so worth the practice! Listen to it and you will be sold!

    Are you kidding me? This arrangement was absolutely beautiful! This had everything you want in a choir song; soft introduction, building harmony, dramatic ending, and soft finish all in a well known Christmas carol. Do your audience a favor and order this music for your next Christmas performance.

  • November 19, 2012 Beautiful - A Must Have

    This arrangement of The First Noel is one of the more beautiful I've heard. It's attainable for an intermediate choir, yet advanced enough for ensembles at a higher level. There is great use of unison and duet work within the arrangement. The choruses are written in a four...

    -part structure that gives unique, soaring lines to each section. The piano part is very well composed and compliments the piece nicely.
