  • January 05, 2012 LOVE this music!!

    I was extremely happy to find this music online! This has long been one of my favorite Christmas songs, and I was in a bind with no music to perform with. My order came swiftly and was exactly what I wanted! This song was perfect sung in parts and is...

    always a big hit!

  • November 25, 2011 Great Piece!

    I love this piece of music. It is not only relatively easy for a beginning choir to sing beautifully, but is also a song where your audiences can feel the Spirit when you're singing! The contrapuntal parts are exciting and of course, the words are perfect for the birth...

    of our Lord and Savior.

  • November 04, 2009 No Christmas should pass without singing it

    I had been singing this piece in my choir since 1990. It was introduced to us by our choir director. We have passed it on to subsquent choir directors through the years. I recently introduced it to a new singing group I joined last year. They loved and we are...

    singing it again this year. I think it evokes so many emotions with both the lyrics and the melodic harmony. It is easy to sing for a less experienced choir. It has surpassed "O Holy Night" as my favorite Christmas hymn

    This is a beautiful song for Christmas. My husband and my daughter sang it for our church service. It was well liked by everyone. It has a very lovely message and tune.
