This lovely nativity musical by Sheila Wilson tells the traditional Christmas story with a novel charm and fun. The songs vary in musical style, are easily learnt and have opportunities for solo singing and instruments (recorders, glockenspiel and kazoos!) making it ideal for Key Stages 1 and 2. The CD provides fully orchestrated backing tracks as well as vocals, and the wordbook provides all the parts and directions for the play.
The musical contains a diverse collection from gentle ballads and soothing lullabies to catchy kazoo choruses and compelling up-tempo numbers. The finale builds quietly and switches dramatically to Gospel style hand-clapping conclusion. And finally, Calling All Little Angels is a toe-tapping rousing finale complete with hand-jives!
Sheila Wilson is a successful composer of music and musicals for Children, and Little Angels has already proved to be another popular choice for cantatas. Lasts 20-25 minutes with acting and narration.
