Calypso Lullaby by Jester Hairston By combining the lively Jester Hairston classic, "Mary's Little Boy Child" with additional new text and a beautiful lullaby setting, Joel Raney has crafted a spirited Christmas celebration for both SATB and Two-Part choirs. The calypso rhythms provide a joyful expression of the angels' song, "Alleluia, shout for joy," alongside an original cradlesong, "Sleep little one, rest your head. " The addition of the optional flute, percussion, bass guitar, and handbells brings this stunning setting to life - a perfect Christmas selection for churches and schools. The Instrumental packet includes a Conductor's Score and parts for Flute, Bass Guitar, Percussion, and 3-Oct. Handbell.
