Prepare for Christmas with your church choir with one of these outstanding anthems, carefully selected by our experienced Sacred Choral Music staff:
Every Valley by Victor C. Johnson
Victor C. Johnson provides this strikingly beautiful setting for the familiar Advent text. The flowing accompaniment enhances the choral harmonies in a quiet celebration of the Child who will bring peace on earth.
Peace Will Come arr. David Schwoebel
Truly memorable for Christmas, this offering features a thoughtful text from Terry York that shares the message “Christmas comes when we hear the still, small Voice of God.” David Danner’s quietly powerful music moves from tender to soaring.
The Long-Awaited by Lee Dengler
This upbeat Advent offering captures the spirit of this blessed time of year with a light classical touch. The rhythmic energy of the accompaniment is reflected in the voices, creating a unique and refreshing piece.
Is There Room in Your Heart for a King? arr.Mark Hayes
Pamela Stewart’s unforgettable text about the search for the birthplace of God s Son challenges all believers to prepare room in their hearts for the King. Mark Hayes magically conveys the heartfelt poetic imagery in this evocative setting.
Born in Bethlehem arr. Mary McDonald
Mary McDonald and Jean Anne Shafferman partnered in this creative pairing of two well-loved spirituals featuring touches of blues, engaging interplay between vocal parts, and clever musical depictions, especially of the “magi from the East.”
Angels We Have Heard on High arr. Peter Anglea
A bright new arrangement of the traditional carol. Exciting rhythmic accompaniment introduces the lively first verse and chorus which contrasts with a quiet, contemplative second verse and chorus. The anthem ends with a strong, dynamic invitation to “come,” ”see” and “adore” the newborn King. A great piece for Christmas Eve.
By Candlelight by Ruth Elaine Schram
For the first time, this modern classic from Ruth Elaine Schram is now available in a new Two-Part mixed voicing. Accompany with the chamber orchestration or the sparkling InstruTrax accompaniment CD.
Cradle Carol arr. Victor C. Johnson
Victor C. Johnson s original melody beautifully blends with a beloved carol and classic lyrics by Christina Rossetti in this sensitive Christmas anthem. “Born in a stable, cradled in a manger, in the world His hands had made, Jesus, born on this day.”
