Filled with charm and warmth, this traditional service is thoughtfully designed for performance by choirs of all sizes with a minimum of preparation and cost. Beloved traditional scripture readings are tightly interwoven with twenty-six carols that include just a touch of Handel and Bach! A continuous flow of carols both accompanies the scripture readings and flows seamlessly into simple arrangements for choir, choir with vocal solo or duet, and choir with congregation. One unique feature is an optional four-hand piano score that adds budget-friendly sparkle! Another welcome option is a simple handbell and percussion score with synth strings and two-hand piano. Flexibly conceived, this program can be performed in its entirety, lasting approximately 30-35 minutes, or shortened to conform to your particular Christmas needs.

  • September 10, 2016 Perfect for a choir wanting carols

    I am ordering this for our Christmas "Musicale" which we perform on the 4th Sunday of Advent. It is fairly simple, which is good for a busy season, and it consists almost entirely of familiar carols, artfully woven togther. It may be a little too long for me too, but...

    it's adjustable. With suggested solos and narration, it will be good for adding children and young persons. I always enjoy the work of Anna Laura Page and Jean Ann Shafferman.

    Although I think this is too long for my needs, it is a lovely setting, and I think it will be fairly straight- forward to adapt to what I want. Perfect for Christians celebrating Christmas.
