This setting of ‘Jesus, friend of little children’ was written about 30 years ago, for the baptism of our younger daughter. It was written as a soprano solo with piano accompaniment. In this current version, it may still be performed as a solo, if desired, but I have added choral harmonies so that it can also be used as a choir anthem at christenings or children’s services. It is in 4 parts (SATB) throughout, apart from a couple of measures where the sopranos divide.

[If you’d like a single copy for use as a solo, please contact me direct at [email protected]]

The simple accompaniment is for piano or organ.


(Note: 8-copy minimum purchase for most choral titles) $1.50
