Children's choirs adore singing and learning interesting facts about Christmas songs from other cultures. In this delightful new setting of the well-known Christmas carol, a nifty "Did You Know?" page presents historical facts and sample phrases from the original Huron language that give children a fascinating picture of the Christmas story from a Native American perspective. Flute, finger cymbals and drum add depth and richness to the hauntingly beautiful melody that's perfect for choirs of younger and older children. A handy teaching plan for the anthem is also available on the Choristers Guild website.
