10 CHRISTMAS SONGS FOR SOLO VOICE

The second release in this vocal solo series is even better than the first. Hayes has crafted ten arrangements for the Christmas season, each of which runs the gamut stylistically. The playful setting of “Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella” features an optional French text and is set in a true art song style. “Jesus, Oh What a Wonderful Child” will have your audiences wanting to clap along with its black gospel feel and improvisatory style. “The Coventry Carol” blends a taste of “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” in a minor mode with this poignant carol. Hayes’ setting of “Silent Night” in German is especially captivating with its challenging but exquisite accompaniment. These solos are perfect for worship settings, Christmas Eve services, concerts, and holiday gatherings. Intersperse them in a Christmas choral program for a change of pace. If you don’t have a pianist available for performance or rehearsal, sing to the accompaniment CD, featuring Mark Hayes on the piano. Ranges: Med. Low a-g2; Med. High c1-a2.
