These arrangements by some of the best in the barbershop business will be great additions to your quartet's repertoire. "The Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy" is a traditional folk song from the Caribbean island of Trinidad. Perform this song in a calypso style giving the singers opportunity to have fun and enjoy the lyric. "Mary Had a Baby" is a beautiful traditional spiritual that celebrates the birth of Jesus. Sing it freely paying attention to the melody transfers among the voice parts. The classic 1950 Christmas song "(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man with the Bag" was originally a hit for Kay Starr and is given a wonderful treatment by David Briner. The humorous "Text Me Merry Christmas" was orginally performed by a cappella supergroup Straight No Chaser.
