Alfred Burt : Christmas Carols TTBB
Review: These delightful carols are the result of a tradition begun by the Reverend Bates G. Burt, his composer son, Alfred and friend-of-the-family Whila Hutson; for many years these three collaborated on the creation of original carols, which were then sent to friends as Christmas cards. The fifteen carols as published are arranged in three sets. The carols within each set were selected to provide a variety of sound and facility of transition from one carol to the next so that each set may be performed as a program group

Close Harmony For Men : Feliz Navidad - 4 Charts and Parts CD
Review: The song 'Feliz Navidad' is one of the most popular and often-heard songs of the Christmas season. It was written and recorded by the Puerto Rican artist Jose Feliciano in 1970. The spanish words are derived from a common holiday greeting 'Feliz navidad, prospero ano y felicidad' meaning 'prosperous year and happiness.' The percussion parts can be played by the choral musicians, or assigned to a small group of percussionist. In either case, the pulse and tempo should remain steady and constant. If you are performing this song in a chorus rather than a quartet, you could try having some of the singers create the percussion parts using vocal percussion or body percussion by imitating the sounds of the maracas, tambourine, cowbell and woodblock. Four copies of the sheet music arrangement plus a CD featuring the full performance plus part-predominant tracks (Tenor, Lead, Baritone, Bass), sung with lyrics.
Songlist: Feliz Navidad, CD features part-predominant tracks, sung with lyrics., Full Performance, Tenor, Lead , Baritone, Bass
Deke Sharon : Men's Pop Christmas
Review: With elegant simplicity, Deke Sharon's arrangement of the Irving Berlin classic "White Christmas" gives each voice its moment to shine. The minimal homophony keeps the pleasurable chord changes coming, culminating with a satisfying cadenza progression that will close your holiday concert with class. Looking for something to spice up your Christmas program? How about the Elvis classic "Santa Claus Is Back In Town"? With plenty of swagger and swing, the tenor solo sits over a bed of playful doo-woppy harmonies. "got no sliegh with reindeer, got no sack on my back, you're gonna see me comin' in a big black Cadillac! Finally a setting of the Charlie Brown Christmas classic "Christmas Time Is Here" that doesn't require a children's choir! The sweetly sentimental Tenor 1 melody floats over and dips into a woven texture of rich jazz harmonies. Originally made famous by Kay Starr, this arrangement transforms "(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man With The Bag" into a playful barbershop swing, with the melody in the tenor 2 line, and lots of right homophony.
Songlist: White Christmas, Christmas Time Is Here, (Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man With The Bag, Santa Claus Is Back In Town

Ralph Vaughan Williams : Nine Carols For Male Voices
Review: Vaughan Williams arranged these carols during World War 1 for the "choir" he developed among the men in his Field Ambulance unit. In 1917 they were stationed in Greece, near Katerini, on a hillside with Mount Olympus towering above. Ursula Vaughan Williams writes "Another experince, which no one who was there forgot, was carol singing on Christmas Eve: snow-capped Olympus, the clear night, the stars, and Ralph's choir singing carols of Hereford and Sussex with passionate nostaglia. The choir made that Christmas so far from home one that had a special quality, a special beauty, long remembered."

Various Arrangers : Men's Jazz Holiday
Review: "All On A Christmas Morning" is one of the least performed but most hauntingly beautiful of the Alfred Burt Christmas carols, this male chorus version features tight four-and five-part voicings and jazz reharmonizations throughout, a rare step-out solo for the second bass, followed by another step-out solo for the first tenor. Rangy, but worthy addition to any Christmas program. This arrangement of "Away In A manger" seeks to give the lyrics their proper focus. It very effectively catches the mood that was intended with the lyrics, alternating shimmering harmonies with unison lines. Each member of the quartet is featured with one verse per person. This jazz waltz arrangement of "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" is reminiscent of Blue Rondo a la Turk. The top tenor has the melody throughout, sung sweetly above the energetic rhythmic bed of the others. Other than a few slightly tongue twisting lines, this arrangement is not at all difficult, but it is very effective. "What Are The Signs?" This little Alfred Burt Christmas carol is effective on its own or as a prelude to other carols in the program, especially other Burt carols. It begins with a Gregorian chant effect with all voices in a very quiet, low unison, then opens into a beautiful four-part male chorale in its second half. Requires good low range in the second bass part.
Songlist: All On a Christmas Morning, What Are the Signs?, Away In a Manger, We Wish You a Merry Christmas

This exuberant arrangement for men's voices is bubbling over with joy and good tidings. Great for glee club or men's chorus, or to give the male voices in your mixed choir a moment in the spotlight.
