Infectious and jazzy, with a dash of handbells (included) thrown in for good measure, this original piece will bring enjoyment to all who hear it! A verse of O Come, O Come, Emmanuelis blended in the middle with excellent effect. Joyful and charming, this piece will be a highlight of the Christmas season.

For the director who is searching for a lighter song that can adapt easily to feature all church choirs and handbells, this novelty piece suits the bill! Generally, the unison verse could easily be "passed around" from children to youth to adults with the 4-pt refrain being sung by the entire group each time it comes around. A small handbell/handchime part is included, but a separate score for 3-5 octave handbells (C6174HB) is available to use in place of piano accompaniment. In a minor key, this fun little piece could be a nice chance to program all the church's choral groups plus handbells for a real audience pleaser.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Easily taught novelty piece; would easily adapt in a multiple choir setting
Cons
Not a deep thought text, but okay for a novelty piece.
