    This arrangement is a MUST HAVE for your Christmas repertoirce! The piano accompaniment sets a delightful tone for this excellent arrangement suitable for any combination of voices. I particularly enjoy how the arranger has used major/minor harmonies and other subtle methods to wonderfully convey the middle verses of this...

    story-song. All in all, this selection brings an ancient Christmas carol and its message to life with great success. Its hard to go wrong with those special selections of music that capture the delight of both performers and the audience -- and this is one of them. Finding the right tempo is essential to the life of this selection - it needs to move to have the right energy, but don't let it run away either.
