The Christmas Suite
All the wonder and joy of the holiday season are clearly present in this fresh new work for schools, community and church choirs everywhere! Scored in a Holiday Pops style for orchestra, choir and optional soloist, this 30-minute work is divided into nine sections, each titled for a letter in the word C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S. Combine your SATB and/or SSA choirs with orchestra, a smaller chamber group, or with the spectacular CD accompaniment for a wonderful salute to the season. Sections and songs include: C - It Must Be Christmas; H - Hark! Hear the Children Sing (Sing We Now of Christmas, What Child Is This, Masters In This Hall); R - Rejoice! Rejoice! (O Come Emmanuel, Rise Up Shepherd and Follow); I - I Hear the Bells (I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, Carol of the Bells); S - Snow!; T - 'Twas the Night; M - Merry, Merry Christmas (Deck the Hall, Bring a Torch, Ding Dong Merrily on High, Fum, Fum, Fum, Hallelujah Chorus, Jingle Bells); A - Angels We Have Heard On High, Sheep May Safely Graze); S - Savior (Joy to the World, Gesu Bambino).
