O Holy Night in a New Setting

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.

Two New Christmas Programs

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.

Glory to God in the Highest Program

Let the Earth Rejoice Program

Enjoy!

The First Noel (SA)

When I first heard this melody sung by the Norwegian singer, Sissel, I knew I had to use it in an arrangement. This version is a simple one for two-part women.
