This thoroughly modern treatment of an ancient German carol (Good Christian Men, Rejoice) is fitting for the opening of a Christmas concert or pageant. Where numbers permit, the optional divisi in the soprano should be observed. The setting is not especially difficult. However on first reading, players may find rest counting easier if they read from the full score. Duration: 1:00

The Prince Consort performs on the accompanying recording.

I enjoy the funky syncopated bits, big-band moments and staccato unisons leading to the next downbeat. Surprising harmonies fit the bill for new and interesting holiday fare!
