What Child is This? receives a new treatment in this a cappella original that features optional djembe and body percussion. This arrangement is freshly set in 2/4 with accompanying rhythmic vocal ostinato patterns in the lower voices, and the original feel is preserved in the middle with a lyrical 6/8 section that transitions back to opening meter. Contemporary a cappella techniques meet a traditional carol, and the effect is mesmerizing!

Choristers Guild has a gem on its hands in this fresh a cappella setting of the familiar carol  text.  While it does briefly call to mind the traditional melody, it is a new-composed piece in a style that will capture your youth choir's enthusiasm instantly.  Underlying vocal and body rhythm ostinati (with optional djembe part) create a mesmerizing effect that could become a perfect a cappella processional.
