Alfred Burt : Christmas Carols SAB

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

Songlist: Caroling, Caroling, O Hearken Ye, All On A Christmas Morning, We'll Dress The House, Ah, Bleak And Chill Wintry Wind, Christmas Cometh Caroling, Some Children See Him, Jesu Parvule, Bright, Bright, The Holly Berries, The Star Carol

Alfred Burt and Jimmy Joyce Singers : This Is Christmas Songbook : SSAATTBB : Songbook : 747510009122 : 35023107

Alfred Burt and Jimmy Joyce Singers : This Is Christmas Songbook

Considered by some to be the finest recording of Christmas carols ever, these original compositions were written by Alfred and primary lyricists Wihla Hutson and Bates G. Burt (Alfred's father). In fact, the carols were initially sent as Christmas messages to Burt family members and friends! Alfred died in 1954 at the age of thirty three, but his legacy has brought joy to untold myriads of listeners ever since. Artists from Nat "King" Cole to the Boston Pops Orchestra and Chorus have popularized what conductor John Williams described as "mini-masterpieces." The sixteen voice a cappella choir directed by arranger Jimmy Joyce (who had worked with Alfred in the Alvino Rey Orchestra) is sprightly and surefooted in their performance, which was recorded in 1963. A sentimental and popular favorite.

Various Arrangers : Vocal Jazz Christmas III : Mixed 5-8 Parts : Sheet Music Collection

Various Arrangers : Vocal Jazz Christmas III

The touching Alfred Burt/Wihla Hutson Christmas carol, 'Some Children See Him' is a gentle but jazz-flavored arrangement. Some reharmonization, yet retains the sweet quality of the original. Features female and male solo spots. The arrangement of 'O Christmas Tree' is an upbeat a cappella version featuring close harmonies and key changes. A brief, warm rubato opening is followed by a swing scat duet, full group in major and minor keys, a foray into 3/4, then a final swing section under a scat solo. SSATTB requiring a strong bass. 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' has a light and happy feel. Bass pedals, soprano descant, bass lines and rhythmic shots occur throughout. A modulation in the last A section is delightfully unexpected. It's a great chart to end the Christmas show.

Songlist: Some Children See Him, O Christmas Tree, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Various Arrangers : Vocal Jazz Christmas 4

'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' is A wonderful arrangement by one of the great arrangers, Morgan Ames. 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' is short and sweet, as fast as you can sing it. It is sung with hums and oo's, no lyrics. The feeling is humorous with traditional harmonies. 'Boogie Woogie Santa' has a 40's, slightly big band feel for voices with a soprano lead. The tempo is lively with pop harmonies. This is a fun, not serious tune. 'Santa Claus is Comin' to Town' is a blend of the Motown (Jackson 5) and rock (Bruce Springsteen) versions of this modern seasonal classic, this driving yet easy to sing arrangement makes for a perfect holiday closer or encore. Melody in soprano line which can be sung as a solo or section. Vocal percussion is optional. The beautiful carol, 'Some Children See Him,' by Alfred Burt and Whila Hutson opens with a tenor solo, soon joined by a warm background chorus. Serene yet gently moving forward with subtle meter and key changes. Little moments for every part to shine. Can be a wonderful counterpoint to the more up-tempo Christmas songs.

Songlist: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Boogie Woogie Santa, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, Some Children See Him

Various Arrangers : Vocal Jazz Christmas 5

'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' is a sweet, heartfelt, close harmony arrangement of this holiday classic featuring a rich baritone solo line and plenty of Puerlingesque harmonies. Based on Greensleeves (traditional) with a warmer lyric 'Once Upon a Christmastime' includes many solo lines meant for free interpretation. 'Some Children See Him' is a Christmas standard written in the 50's by Los Angeles session singer, Alfred Burt. Burt's original changes are reinterpreted in this great arrangement by Morgan Ames. Based on Silent Night sung without words until the last line, 'Silent (Sleep In Heavenly)' has many short solo lines meant for free interpretation. 'Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town' is transformed into a hard-swingin', lighthearted arrangement. It features solos for a male and female, a half chorus scat solo, and a big shout chorus finish. Light vocal percussion and a strong bass singer are necessary. You will love this harmonically challenging, yet rewarding piece!

Songlist: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Some Children See Him, Silent (Sleep In Heavenly Peace), Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town
