'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' is A wonderful arrangement by one of the great arrangers, Morgan Ames. 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' is short and sweet, as fast as you can sing it. It is sung with hums and oo's, no lyrics. The feeling is humorous with traditional harmonies. 'Boogie Woogie Santa' has a 40's, slightly big band feel for voices with a soprano lead. The tempo is lively with pop harmonies. This is a fun, not serious tune. 'Santa Claus is Comin' to Town' is a blend of the Motown (Jackson 5) and rock (Bruce Springsteen) versions of this modern seasonal classic, this driving yet easy to sing arrangement makes for a perfect holiday closer or encore. Melody in soprano line which can be sung as a solo or section. Vocal percussion is optional. The beautiful carol, 'Some Children See Him,' by Alfred Burt and Whila Hutson opens with a tenor solo, soon joined by a warm background chorus. Serene yet gently moving forward with subtle meter and key changes. Little moments for every part to shine. Can be a wonderful counterpoint to the more up-tempo Christmas songs.
