Masters In This Hall - MusicK8.com Singles Reproducible Kit

John Riggio's lovely arrangement of this well-loved English carol is set in a Celtic style, with a rollicking feel reminiscent of its French dancing song roots. He's added jingle bells (it is a Christmas carol, after all), and over everything, a fiddle and penny whistle play a spirited motif. We've also included both the traditional English sacred text and alternate secular lyrics, so you can use this beautiful song in any holiday performance.

Warm-Up In Gee (And Gosh Golly) - MusicK8.com Singles Reproducible Kit

The real panache of this tune comes from its dubious orchestration. You and your students will be treated to a cacophony of sounds best described as, "Huh? Was anyone hurt in that accident?" But seriously, the vocal warm-ups contained in this lighthearted three-way partner piece are quite legitimate in their focus.

The Angels Sang - MusicK8.com Singles Reproducible Kit

Angels and Christmas go hand in hand. Inspired by the concept of a heavenly troupe of young musicians, this piece offers the perfect opportunity to spotlight your own little angels. This song by Teresa Jennings is a tasteful blend of folk, rock, and march styles. The lyrics are simple and the melody memorable.

Go Tell It On The Mountain - MusicK8.com Choral Octavo

This superb one-of-a-kind arrangement by Teresa Jennings was written to showcase the talent of young singer Katy Gentry many years ago. Now finally available for choirs with their own soloist, it still has the power to inspire all who hear it. Progressing from slow and beautiful to mid-tempo gospel style to an amazing a cappella section, back to mid-tempo gospel style, and then into a full, hand-clapping, joyous up-tempo gospel ending, it practically guarantees listeners will be compelled to get to their feet. Options for performance, such as divisis and ad libbing, are included to make it more flexible for young choirs.

We Wish You A Swingin' Holiday - MusicK8.com Singles Reproducible Kit

This clever, high-powered partner song is a real showstopper, and if we are to believe the hundreds of teachers who wrote us about it, it was also one of the most popular selections in last year's winter concerts. Loosely based on "We Wish You A Merry Christmas," Teresa Jennings' ingenious concoction turns the song into a great swing tune with a verrrrry proper chorale-like center section. For the second verse, a scat-like partner is introduced which is a lot of fun to perform, and the third time through these two are combined for a fine finale. As icing on this confection, Paul Jennings has created a rich orchestration for big band with strings and harpsichord joining in during the chorale section.

In The Spirit - MusicK8.com Singles Reproducible Kit

Over the years we've learned that kids just love big band jazz tunes. This very lively swing tune is a mixture of familiar textures and riffs, lovingly parodied from favorite, familiar tunes. Despite the busy and complex rhythm and big band instrumental tracks on the recording, the vocal part is actually pretty simple. It's also quite infectious. We affectionately nicknamed it "In The Mood Meets Bandstand Boogie At Christmas." It will be a real crowd-pleaser for your next holiday program.
