Repertoire Note

Choral level of difficulty: 1 (5 greatest)

This is a simple carol which is given a colourful piano part to enhance its sense of progress. Easy for children to pick up and attractive to listen to. It would obviously also work well for adult sopranos in a Christmas carol concert where a piano was being used.
