Christmas Candles

for SATB Choir (with optional children’s part)

This light-hearted holiday song was commissioned by a local community chorus, one of whose members wrote the words.

I was asked to include a part for children’s choir, and I understand everyone enjoyed taking part. It has a simple message – to chase away the gloom, and spread light and happiness to all at Christmas time!

It could be performed without a children’s choir if desired, with some of the sopranos taking the children’s part.

The accompaniment is for piano, although it can be easily adapted to include other instruments.

A moving setting of the classic American lullaby. Good for developing singers, but also a good choice for some lovely unison singing with more advanced ensembles. The students we arranged this for absolutely loved it. We hope your choir does too.
