Jester Hairton. Luke 2:8-14.

By combining the lively Jester Hairston classic, "Mary's Little Boy Child" with additional new text and a beautiful lullaby setting, Joel Raney has crafted a spirited Christmas celebration for both SATB and Two-Part choirs. The calypso rhythms provide a joyful expression of the angels' song, "Alleluia, shout for joy," alongside an original cradlesong, "Sleep little one, rest your head." The addition of the optional flute, percussion, bass guitar, and handbells brings this stunning setting to life -- a perfect Christmas selection for churches and schools. The Instrumental packet includes a Conductor's Score and parts for Flute, Bass Guitar, Percussion, and 3-Oct. Handbells.

    This piece has gone down really well with the choir. The rhythm is easy and flows well and the choir have picked it up quickly. I also bought the accompaniment CD which really makes it. I would definitely recommend this for enhancing a Christmas repertoire.
