Cover A Christmas Carmen [level: Medium]
Christopher S. Delp | Joseph Ohrt Choral Series
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1021 | duration: 5:30 | price: $2.25
accompaniment: a cappella
American poet John Greenleaf Whittier authored the profound text. “Carmen” of the title in Latin translates as “song” or “poem.” The poem begins:
Sound over all waters, reach out from all lands,
The chorus of voices, the clasping of hands;
Sing hymns that were sung by the stars of the morn,
Sing songs of the angels when Jesus was born!
Composer Delp has done a masterful job setting the text. With very little divisi, it is accessible to many choirs.

Michael J. Mills | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series

Winner of the 2010 American Choral Directors Association Raymond W. Brock Memorial Student Composition Contest, the piece was premiered to great acclaim at the 2011 ACDA National Convention. Set to a poem by Alfred Tennyson, the poet used the metaphor of an ocean sand bar to describe the barrier between life and death.

An elegant piece for the mature choir.
