Christmas Time in the Eyes of a Child

for children’s choir and piano

Christmas Time in the Eyes of a Child is a light-hearted secular Christmas song for children, although it could be performed by adults. This version is specifically arranged for children’s choir with piano accompaniment, and can either be sung in unison or in two parts (SA). There is also a solo version and a mixed choir (SATB) version available, the latter incorporating an optional part for children’s choir.

The words are by Linda Marcus (who wrote ‘River in Judea’) and the music is by Gordon Thornett. Described as ‘charming’ and ‘beautiful’ by choral directors and ‘brimming with the spirit of the season’ by a music publisher, this song should provide a pleasing addition to any holiday concert.

Carol of the Seekers is a short, sweet, simple Christmas carol for treble voices, either a cappella or with handbells. The refrain’s joyous, cascading “Noël” suggests tintinnabulation, while the five verses offer a metaphysical interpretation of the Christmas story: like the shepherds and the wise men, all who seek the infant Jesus will find him […]

Nearly every December, Christmas sneaks up on me far too quickly, busy as I am with end-of-semester grading and final exams. I’m an admittedly nostalgic guy who unabashedly loves Christmas music, and every year I think to myself ‘I really should have written a Christmas piece this year’. Christmas 2015 followed a similar pattern, except […]
