Perhaps one of the most-loved Christmas carols of all time, “Silent Night” receives royal treatment in this Hayes’ arrangement: the result is utter peace. Creative chord substitutions in the harmonic structure enhance the familiar melody, and the piano accompaniment gives a fresh sound to the well-known carol. If you choose to use it, the instrumentation will lend richness to the overall performance. The partwriting is quite accessible to most male choruses, making this an excellent choice for any Christmas service or special program.
