Whisper! Whisper! (Baby Born Today)

By Jay Althouse

Choir Sacred (SATB choir)
Composed by Jay Althouse. Choral Octavo. Alfred Archive Edition: Alfred Choral Designs. Christmas; Sacred; Spiritual; Winter. Choral Octavo. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.5796).

Item Number: AP.5796

Another memorable Christmas spiritual from Jay Althouse. Strong dynamic contrasts (from "Whisper, whisper, tiny baby in a manger lay" to "Shout it out from the hills and valleys; baby born today") make this a winner for your choir. A lush middle section contrasts with the rhythmic excitement of the opening theme. Brief, easy solos for both a male and female singer. A cappella.
A cappella.

    Our Hawkstone (Ontario) choir did this piece for Christmas in four part harmony. It was fun to sing and great to listen to. My mother who sings in a choir in Qualicum Beach B.C. wants her choir to sing it now so I will order it for her. Great...

    This has got to be our small, church choir's best-loved Christmas song. I strongly recommend this piece.
