Christmas Time in the Eyes of a Child

for SATB choir and piano

Christmas Time in the Eyes of a Child is a light-hearted secular Christmas song for mixed choir (SATB) This version is for  mixed choir (SATB), and also incorporates an optional part for children’s choir (in unison) if available. The piece would suit a community choir, or maybe a school choir.   There is also an S(A) version for children’s choir, and a solo version for voice and piano.

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.
