Born in BethlehemPhil & Lynne Brower / Don Wyrtzen - Great Stuff Music Company
A favorite, traditional African-American spiritual treated with a pleasurable twist of contemporary and big-band elements. With new All-Christmas lyrics (spanning the entire cast of the Christmas story), it provides opportunity for short solos/small groups to perform in this up-beat song along with choir. Not only do the ten rounds and repetitive phrases delight the audience, the intensity of its “organized confusion” promises much Holiday pleasure to vocalists, as well.

*Director’s Note- ‘Great opportunity for additional charm to performance by having soloists choreographed to step out, sing phrase, and step back when finished. For the unison phrase, “Born, born, born in Bethlehem, ALL vocalists step out and back. Try it … will add so much!'
