  • November 29, 2007 Absolutely gorgeous Christmas carol

    This is truly one of the 3 or 4 prettiest Christmas carols I've ever heard, and I've been directing choirs for about 20 years. The piece requires first and second soprano, first and second alto, first and second tenor, and first and second bass parts, so it is...

    not appropriate if your choir is smaller than about 16 voices evenly spaced among the parts. Also, although for the most part the ranges are not taxing, the rhythms are very challenging and some of the harmonies are difficult, particularly for inexperienced choirs. If you have a larger choir that has some ambitious and talented singers, it is hard to imagine a more spectacularly beautiful piece for a Christmas concert.
