for SATB choir, piano, optional string quartet, flute and oboe
Traditional English Carol
Published by Beckenhorst Press
A brilliant arrangement of the traditional English carol for SATB choir and piano or optional chamber orchestra. This piece is high in joyful energy from start to finish and certain to become a regular part of the season for years to come. "On Christmas night all Christians sing to hear the news the angels bring!
On Christmas night all Christians sing,
to hear the news the angels bring;
news of great joy, news of great mirth.
news of our merciful King's birth.
Then why should men on earth be sad,
since our Redeemer made us glad;
when from our sin he set us free,
all for to gain our liberty.
When sin departs before his grace
then life and health come in its place.
Angels and men with joy may sing,
all for to see the newborn King.
All out of darkness we have light, which made the angels sing this night;
"Glory to God in highest heaven
Now and for evermore," Amen!
