Livingston Gearhart achieved fame as one of the composers and arrangers for Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians. This Gearhart arrangement of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” features bouncing accompaniment and a sprightly interplay between voices. Creative dynamic contrasts in the third verse make the demand for figgy pudding very effective indeed!

    The choral writing is pretty straight ahead; the tune is displayed clearly every time it is heard. SA play chase with TB, so the singers will need to understand just how quickly they tail each other. What makes this difficult is the jumpy and mostly unrelated piano part, full of...

    engaging dissonances that bumfuzzled my community college choir (most of whom do not read music) in the rehearsal period. The piece is cheerful, quick, and crowd pleasing if it hangs together in performance.
