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.
