Hal Leonard08745122, SATB, $1.60 This festive piece for mixed voices dances along in 6/8 meter, heralding the birth of the Christ child by the angelic host. Pamela Martin’s text is particularly imaginative and poetic. Hayes has masterfully crafted a lilting, joyous melody that includes a section of the beloved carol, “Angels We Have Heard on High” also in 6/8 meter. From the first few energetic notes to the rousing finale repeating “Gloria, Gloria” you will be captivated by this Christmas anthem of joy. A sparkling orchestration and track truly enhance the accessible choral writing.
