And His name shall be called ; Away in a manger ; Behold that star ; Children, go where I send thee ; Go, tell it on the mountain ; Mary had a baby ; Mighty wonder ; Remember, O thou man ; Rise up, shepherd, and follow ; Star of the night ; The Virgin Mary had a baby boy ; Wasn't that a mighty day!show more

Review quote

Since Ken Burton and Bob Chilcott have both been involved in writing and arranging music for this book, it is no wonder that the result is a collection of fresh and exciting songs . . . Any choir looking for something lively, challenging and a bit different this Christmas should definitely take a look at this collection of songs. Highly recommended. * Church Music Quarterly, September 04 * These are high-class arrangements . . . The arrangements themselves are consistently pleasurable, and many are a joy. Ken Burton . . . contributes five of the 12 numbers. His work seems to go from strength to strength, always writing from inside the style, never doing a fussy or flashy thing where a simple thing will do, consistently providing both an element aof surprise and emotional uplift where needed . . . Multi-talented Roderick Williams provides a different style of arranging entirely - clever, self-aware, tricksy, virtuoso . . . The book is attractively presented, not too bulky, and the music, even where quite complex, is clearly laid out and easy to read. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer Oct 04 *show more
