Linda Spevacek: Christmas Carols for Mixed Voices

Merrily Sing Noel!
Riu, Riu, Chiu
Sing Hey
The Sound of Pipe and Drum

The vibrant, festive original, 'Merrily Sing Noel!' is a marvelous opener or change-of-pace selection. Its fanfare-like style and bright mood also offer nice, effective dynamic contrasts. Superb treble writing! The madrigal-like setting of the traditional Christmas greeting, 'Sing hey!' features a festive dance-like flavor. Most accessible, engaging, and fun, it alsomakes an excellent choice for madrigal dinners. 'The Sound of Pipe and Drum' is a delightfully fresh new setting of the lively, dance-like Pierre Certon madrigal, complete with a new English text and appropriate for general concert/contest use or for Christmas. The original French lyrics are included as an option. The new voicings of this best-selling arrangement of the Spanish Carol, 'Riu, Riu, Chiu,' include text options for English or Spanish. Tambourine and hand claps lend a festive, colorful flair. Whether performed with or without piano accompaniment, the limited ranges, repetitious form, and opportunities for solos yield built-in success for holiday programs.
