SATB. Optional hand drum and sleigh bells.
Sing Christmas! was the first in my series of original Christmas pieces to be released.
The work is based on some original ideas and rhythms I’d had sitting in my head from high school that I’d never written down. I am fascinated by lively, less-traditional rhythms, and wanted to write a Christmas piece that went against the standard of either soft, pretty pop tunes, or dirge-like hymns. I felt that Christmas should be celebrated, and a niche existed for a more animated celebratory Christmas piece, for SATB a cappella.
Sing Christmas! was released under personal copyright to CPDL (the choral public domain library) in late 2010. Performances include several in South Africa, Canada, Mexico and the USA.
