Three human "dogs" bark the solos on this hilarious, Baroque-style Christmas novelty number. "On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a Schnauzer with a goatee. Arf! Afr!" Outstanding, fully orchestrated SoundTrax CD adds a "pops concert" sound. May be performed by treble, male or mixed choirs of all ages.

    I used this with my community choir last year and it brought the house down. Using it with an SATB choir with the ladies singing and the men barking. How they will get through a performance without laughing, I do not know! The audience just LOVED it last time, This...

    is a total must. The audience will remember this one for a long time....
