Various Arrangers : Christmas Celebration

Review: 'He is Born' is fun to sing, with varied textures and has a great variety of compositional techniques. 'My Dancing Day' is a popular old English text and carol, perfect for High school choir Christmas concerts or church choir. It has a variety of contrasts and vocal colors. 'O Holy Child' is a lovely, original carol with lilting "Alleluia" refrains and contrasting introspective verses. Thought provoking textual imagery. Basically two musical ideas (refrain and verse) repeated several times. It is koyful to learn, rewarding to perform and requires flexibility and sensitivity from the singers. 'This Night Did God Become a Child' is a 3-stanza homophonic setting with syncopated "Alleluias" and antiphonal-echo effects. In 'There Is No rose of Such Virtue,' arching melodic line and warm harmonies join hands in the elegantly simple setting for the Christmas season. Laubengayer's arrangement of 'Silent Night' has the traditional text set to a new tune.

Songlist: He Is Born, My Dancing Day, O Holy Child, This Night Did God Become a Child, There Is No Rose of Such Virtue, Silent Night

Various Arrangers : Christmas for Developing Choirs

Review: Develop your choir's a cappella skills with "Alleluia Madrigal", a straightforward original madrigal by Donald Moore. Traditional harmonies, modest ranges, and lots of repetition make it a quick-learn piece. Contrasting dynamics and a lilting three-four meter create a joyful song that is good for Christmas or general use. "What'cha Gonna Bring For Christmas?" - Feature your best solo crooner(s) on this '50s inspired a cappella chorus that begs Santa for a timeless teen wish: "Won't you bring me someone to love?" The choir serves equally as the featured act (of the chorus and bridge) and the backup singers (for two dreamy verses). The final falsetto phrases and 7th chord cadence deliver a sweet doo-wop ending. "Christmas Eve Is Here" - A fresh approach to this early French carol. Polyphony resounds as sections of the choir perform unique and overlapping lines in a minor mode. Performance options include any combination of a cappella choir, handbells or tonechimes, piano, hand drum, and tambourine. Impressive. "Come, See The Baby" is a new, original Christmas spiritual by Jay Althouse. This full-sounding work features much three-part singing over a solid, traditional bass part, as well as an echo section between the women and the men. Sudden dynamic changes are powerful and effective (and simple to sing).

Songlist: What'cha Gonna Bring For Christmas?, Christmas Eve Is Here, Noel, Noel!, Look Up, Children, Alleluia Madrigal, Come, See The Baby, Carol Of The Drum

Various Arrangers : Christmas South of the Border

Review: Add a multi-cultural element to your Christmas concerts and celebrate the Navidad season. The Mexican tradition of ""La Fiesta de la Posada"" recreates the search for a room at an inn. This delightful number by Sally Albrecht recreates that tradition in song with an English text that tells the story ("when we light luminarias and swing at the pinata."). Features an optional solo/duet in each verse. "Cantemos" is a beautiful, rhythmic Venezuelan folk carol with an English/Spanish text. "Vamos todos a Belen" - A detailed translation/pronunciation guide makes it easy to master the Spanish text of this traditional Mexican-American Christmas song, or perform it in English. Lilting six-eight piano creates a gentle rocking motion as we sing about going to Bethlehem to see the baby. In the middle, a solo is briefly accompanied by only the chorus before a thrilling modulation and final flourish to the glorious end.

Review: 'In Excelsis Gloria' is a beautiful, simple and effective setting of the 15th century text.

Various Arrangers : Six Carols

Review: The Cornish folk tune 'The Holy Bears a Berry,' alternates between men and women's voices. Solo sections may be sung by small groups. This arrangement is best for church, community, or school choirs. 'Ding Dong! Merrily on High' is a vigorous 8 part a cappella piece with constant vocal imitation of bells. Elaborate counterpoint and canonic devices. Completely diatonic, harmonically and melodically conservative. Rhythmic ostinatos give non-stop energy leading to dazzling finish. 'Gloria in Excelsis Deo' begins and ends with a rhythmic and exciting statement of the Gloria text. The middle section is tranquil and effectively emotes the feeling of peace that is being presented in the text. The final statement is one of peace. Challenging, but well worth the work. Van's arrangement of 'Once in Royal David's City.' is an introspective and reflective setting of this Christmas standard. The composer includes many of the elements that have become associated with this hymn. This arrangement begins with either a treble solo, or with all sopranos, it then broadens into a rich setting of the following stanzas, and ends with a hushed treatment of the text "And our eyes at last shall see him." May be used in worship or concerts. 'Angels We have Heard on High' is a beautiful and energetic arrangement that is appropriate for both worship and concert use. The piece is written in a unique way that incorporates vocal accompaniments that are shared between men's and women's voices. Includes soaring descants throughout. Composed in the Australian winter of 2005, 'Ave Maria' was written by Jacobs in response to the death of a close friend's mother. Her passion for Renaissance music influenced many aspects of the piece, particularly text, and the decision to set it for two a cappella choirs.

Songlist: Holly Bears a Berry, The, Ding Dong! Merrily on High, Gloria in excelsis Deo, Once in Royal David's City, Angels We Have Heard on High, Ave Maria

Various Arrangers : Spirituals for Christmas

Review: The upbeat gospel-flavored anthem "Rock-a My Saviour" is a real treat. With a quiet energy, it soon builds to a celebrative song of praise. Beginning with a basic melodic pattern from the men, the other voices join for a rich and spirited anthem with a hushed conclusion. The original a cappella Christmas spiritual "Run To The Manger" is packed with rhythmic vitality and inspiring lyrics. Features a great hook and call-and-response solos. The master of the African American spiritual Moses Hogan creates a glorious arrangement of "Glory, Glory, Glory to the Newborn King", and adds his own words and music, based on the spiritual "Go Tell It On The Mountain". Selected for the Paul A. Smith Choral Series, "See Dat Babe" features excellent writing for the a cappella choir, with all the rhythm and vigor to bring the house down.

Giles Swayne : Four Christmas Carols, Op. 77

Review: Four Christmas carols that capture the distinctive, contradictory and unmistakable choral style of Giles Swayne. Always plain-speaking, challenging, intense and emotionally honest, Swayne's music also brims with wit, melody and a sly playfulness that is both captivating and addictive. The Four Christmas Carols were written over several years. The first three are for unison voices with Piano, and can be performed by the whole assembly. The fourth requires a larger SATB chorus, and is a larger, expressive and impressive setting of The Coventry Carol. This set of carols has it all -from grand unison melodies, familiar tunes and rousing choruses to more poignant, challenging and unusual passages. It represents a hugely satisfying and entertaining addition to any festive performance or carol concert.
