R&R Chair High School Choirs

This is a bright, cheerful Christmas piece ideally suited for a younger high school choir or the small high school program. There are specific Christmas references in the text which may make it unsuitable for some, but a little creative editing might solve that problem. Interesting use of mixed meters add interest to piano interludes. Interesting melodies and counter melodies are shared in all the voice parts, and voice leading within the parts is fairly easy, while never becoming trite or banal.
