A Christmas Round
multi-lingual round for voices, accompanied
- Duration flexible
A Christmas Round sets the words "Glory to God in the highest, and peace to all people on earth" in English, Latin, Koine Greek, French, Arabic and Hebrew. The music works as a round in four parts, and the traditional melody of "We wish you a merry Christmas" also appears at the end. Something for Christmas that could be sung effectively by young children and by experienced singers, in the context of a carol service or as a concert item, fairly simple - but not simplistic!
