An authentic Caribbean island feel is maintained in the contemporary rhythm driven accompaniment of this new arrangement of Randy Stonehill's immensely popular song. This combination of elements brings a fresh, new vibe to its performance. The timely message that one should renounce darkness and embrace the source of light, is delivered in repetitious fun throughout this rhythmically compelling piece. A solo, that practically sings itself, provides the glue that connects the choral elements. The availability of several voicings of this accessible arrangement provide an appealing performance opportunity for all choirs (of any age). So, "shut de do, light de candle, everyting's alright."Core Instrumentation: Latin Percussion, Rhythm Scripture Reference: 1 Peter 5:8-9a.
