SATB and Piano (or String Orchestra and Harp)
Dickens’ masterpiece, A Christmas Carol, is a story about transformation and the chance for redemption which just happens to be set during the Christmas season. This holiday can mean many things to many different people but, in my case (as in Ebenezer Scrooge’s), it’s simply a time that serves as a reminder about how we’re supposed to be treating our “fellow-passengers” during the rest of the calendar year.
A Christmas Carol was commissioned by the Mesa High School A Cappella Choir (Germán Aguilar, Conductor) and is dedicated with love to my little sister, Caitlin.
Note: There is also a version of this piece accompanied by string orchestra and harp which is also available.
