God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

Series: Shawnee Sacred
Publisher: Shawnee Press
Format: Octavo
Arranger: Heather Sorenson

Uses: Christmas, Concert

Scripture: Luke 2:11; Matthew 1:23; Romans 6:23

Primal in its impact and musical syntax, this arrangement of a time-honored Christmas carol is a unique choice for concert or worship programming. Rhythmically vital and infused with syncopated punctuations, this anthem makes use of unison for precision and power while thoughtfully placed harmonic episodes bring forward a distinctive contemporary element. The choir dialogues back and forth with the well-known “Tidings of joy” phrase, building the crescendo of praise to an almost frenzied finale! Unforgettable! Parts (pno, djem, vn 1-2, vc, syn) available as a digital download.
