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.
