Jay Althouse : Christmas Spirituals for Mixed Choirs Vol. 2 : SATB : Sheet Music

Jay Althouse : Christmas Spirituals for Mixed Choirs Vol. 2

A new, original Christmas spiritual by Jay Althouse in the tradition of his top-selling "Whisper!, Whisper!," "I saw a Star," and "Star of Glory." "Come, See The Baby" 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). "Have You Heard The News" is everything you have come to love and expect from a Jay Althouse Christmas spiritual, and a whole lot more. Lively and quick lyrics, solid rhythmic hooks, and refreshing parallel chords fill every phrase, followed by melodic riffs from the men's section. A contrasting middle section gently holds back before the A section returns including a well-written modulation and rousing descant over the final flourish. A great addition to your choral library. If you're having trouble finding a good, singable spiritual, look no further! Patsy Simms' arrangement of the traditional "Good News" is your choice. Features a rollicking piano accompaniment, some handclapping and a swinging descant on the final chorus. "Festival Deck The Hall" is a fresh and contemporary a cappella approach to a traditional carol. Jay Althouse has added wonderful new rhythms and harmonies, and has added a completely unique "fa la la" section reminiscent of a Swingle Singers arrangement. The first part of each phrase is true to the original carol; it's the "fa la la's" which take off in a whirlwind of choral excitement. Original, exceptional...and your singers will love it! Also included in thiis package is "Look-A That Star," "Who's That Baby," and "The Twenty-Fifth Day Of December."

Songlist: Look-A That Star, Who's That Baby?, Have You Heard the News?, The Twenty-Fifth Day of December, Good News!, Festival Deck the Hall

Various Arrangers : Spirituals for Christmas

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.

Songlist: See Dat Babe, Run To The Manger, Rock-a My Saviour, Glory, Glory, Glory to the Newborn King, Have You Heard the News?, See Dat Babe
