God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen

What a great way to feature the gentlemen of your middle school, junior high or high school chorus! Staying comfortably within the changing-voice range, they get to imitate the sound of a swinging, walking string bass as they lay the foundation for the tune, introduced by the girls. Then the girls have fun singing the bass line up an octave while the boys carry the melody. Now also available for SATB, this works great for high school, but the SATB version may still be sung at the junior high level because the bass part is in the baritone range throughout. Complete with finger snaps and a whispered "Yeah!
" at the end, this is extremely cool, and is guaranteed to be a huge hit with your students and audiences!
