The wonderful Livingston and Evans Christmas classic is set here for 6-part men’s ensemble, and although it’s a challenging arrangement, a skilled ensemble will be rewarded with harmony reminiscent of the group “GLAD” that stretches their ears and gives them a great experience. A wide dynamic range and the use of jazz reharmonization are complemented with some fun swinging moments. There are no solos broken out in the chart, which can make it easier to put together and present for larger choirs, but a six-man group could also sing this well (and surely altos can cover much of the top two parts if need be).
