With words and music by John Rutter, this gentle and moving carol features simple melodic lines and a delightful, nursery-style Christmas text. For unison voices with an optional second part and full Piano accompaniment.
Simply beautiful. Sensible pitch for children and plenty of opportunity for dynamic contrast. The 2nd part is easy to learn and only occurs three times, each time being almost identical, so it is very easy to achieve performance standard quickly. My school choir have loved this. Definitely gives the 'tingle factor'! Anonymous

This is a beautiful, melodic composition. Simple enough for children sing but just as effective with adults. Anonymous

Not his greatest opus. The melody is uninspiring and the text (his own) banal. That said, it has his trademark uses of harmony and structure, so someone will like it. I was looking for an interesting Christmas song for a prep-school senior choir, but this is not enough of a challenge for them. Anonymous
