I have always loved the words and music to “O Holy Night” and so the challenge to write an alternate setting to it was a daunting one. I used the same words, but conjured a new setting that I hope captures the excitement and awe of the words.
Today we have two different Christmas programs. Each of them has six Christmas numbers, all alternate settings of traditional songs, and straightforward so that they could be learned quickly. Each song comes with suggested scriptural narration that can be used to go from song to song.
After many hours of work, my first Christmas program is here! It has six SATB arrangements with accompanying narration. Below you can download the whole program or each of the pieces individually.
Angels We Have Heard on High (All Creatures of Our God and King)
Seek Him Still (Updated Oct 2013)
Away in a Manger (Choir) Final (Updated Oct 2013)
Please let me know if you perform it. I would love to hear how you like it. I hope to make this an annual event.
I just added two different alternate-tune Christmas carols:
Away in a Manger (Crusader’s Hymn)
Hark, the Herald Angels Sing (Come Thou Fount)
I also added a piece that was a request from the Facebook Page.
