Christmas Song for mixed choir (SATBB) performed by the Composer's Choir under Dan Shaw.Long description:A jaunty melody with countermelodies with words telling of children playing their games in the dusty streets (ie of Bethlehem) unaware that a miracle has happened and asking them to look up to the angels and join their singing:"See the children playing in the dusty alleywaysall the buildings round them give no hint of the miraclewhich happened in a tiny stable just close bySing NowellThe time has comeThe time is hereFor God has comeTo visit usin the form of a babycalled JesusSee the children playing in the dusty alleywaysThey don't know the miracle happened in their very midstThey don't see the angels hovering overheadThey don't hear the angels singing singing praisesThey are playing their own games of mirth so carefree.[Soprano descant] The angels hover unseen over the stable singing their praisesThey are just like everyone engrossed in their own livesNever looking up to the sky where angels sing[Soprano descant] Sing Alleluia...and the children do not hear oh children you do not hearand the children do not know oh children you do not knowthe great and mighty wonderthe full and blessèd cureJesus is God incarnateChildren hear!Rise now from the dusty streets and noisy alleywaysCome and see the wonder which is come to youLeave your games and join the great celestial choir of angelsSing NowellThe time is herethe Word has cometo visit usin the form of a babycalled JesusWe were children playing in the dusty alleywaysNow we know the miracle which happened in our very midst[Soprano descant] the angels hover unseen over the stable singing their praisesSing Alleluia...O Children sing!".
