Description

for SATB and organ This stirring Christmas song, setting a text by Kevin Crossley-Holland, combines bouncing rhythms, expressive Chilcott harmonies, and vibrant word-painting to depict the gifts brought to Christ's stable. Unison sections are contrasted with imitative writing, and an undulating piano part creates a sense of drive. An ideal addition to Christmas services and concerts for more experienced choirs.show more

Review quote

This tuneful carol, with words by Kevin Crossley-Holland, is appealing and entertaining. The choir sings 'Rrrrr!' to represent the star, and 'Eeyore!' for the donkey. All good fun! The organ plays a supportive accompaniment that, for much of the time, has undulating compound-time quavers. The part is well written and will give the competent player little difficulty. This piece is sure to go down well with many a congregation and audience. * Christopher Maxim, Sunday by Sunday, December 2012 *show more
