A new SSA arrangement by Mim Adams

This holiday classic with a jazz twist is an excellent introduction to harmony singing for intermediate singers.

Each line is melodic and memorable, with fun melismas that give the piece a contemporary feel. While the intervals between parts are mostly consonant, there are a few jazzy dissonances to spice things up. The development of the bridge into a delightfully surprising three-part round will further challenge singers' abilities to hold on to their rhythms.

Jazz musicians embellish and adapt standard repertoire. Be sure to compare this arrangement with performances of the song in its original style. Note the elongated timing, and discuss how it affects the overall feel of the piece.

Mim Adams has directed jazz choirs in post-secondary schools and community groups since 2003. She writes arrangements for her choirs and other ensembles and loves to notate music.
