Popular Christmas carol by Phillips Brooks & Lewis Redner This setting by Kevin Boesiger takes the familiar and invigorates it with a fresh treatment. Opening with the choir singing Lewis Redner's well-known tune on "oo," the piece then moves to syncopated rhythms and the development of a new melody. The singable choral lines and interesting harmonies help to make this anthem one choirs will easily learn and enjoy. Optional rhythm parts add interest and drive to this refreshing take on a familiar carol.
