One of the traditions surrounding Christmas is the predominance of the colors green and red. These colors as well as other colors associated with Christmas take on significant meaning when used to symbolize the various beliefs of the Christian faith: green for eternal life in Christ and red for the blood he shed on the cross. This song musically expresses the symbolism of these colors and their connection to the birth and life of Jesus. Arranged in the key of G major for a 4-part mixed voice a cappella choir, the vocal ranges are as follows (C4=middle C): Soprano--B3 to D5; Alto--G3 to A4; Tenor--D3 to D4; Bass/Baritone--G2 to G3. Also included are optional violin and cello parts with the violin adding a flowing descant while the cello provides a subtle bass rhythm. The string parts are moderately easy with all notes playable in the first and second positions for both the violin and cello. The tune is up-beat and easy-to-learn making it suitable for choirs from high school age and up. Duration 2:00. Purchase price includes the 11 page combined score plus a 6 page score with vocals only and a separate 3 page score with the violin and cello parts only. To purchase multiple copies for choral use, this arrangement without the violin and cello parts is available separately at a reduced price.
