This Christmas original is a wonderful way to combine adult voices with children's choir. It's set in a delightful calypso style and features a call and response, with the children ending each phrase in a playful rhyme scheme: "day-o, hay-o, lullaby-o, asleep-o, sheep-o." It all adds up to a joyous version of the Christmas story, highlighting all of the characters that were present at Jesus' birth.

This piece fulfills the need of many churches for a Christmas anthem that incorporates children's choir with the youth and/or adult choirs in the concert or worship setting. It has a lilting calypso style and uses a call-response form. What the publisher refers to as a "playful rhyme scheme" strikes this reviewer as a bit over-simplified, yet, depending on the children involved, it may meet a certain need.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Uses children's choir and SATB choir
Cons
Text could be stronger
