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.

Cover Emerald Stream [level: Medium]
Seth Houston | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1046 | duration: 2:00 | price: $2.05
accompaniment: a cappella
The then 17 year old composer was in a canoe fishing with his dad in Colorado when the inspiration for this great piece began. The music draws from the “shape-note” singing tradition featuring a hearty, strong sound, an imitative fuging section, melodic ornaments, open intervals, and doubling at the octave. It is unusual, in that the melody is in the bass part. The text by the composer draws on the hymn-writing style of the great theologians of the shape-note tradition, while it proclaims a more contemporary message of environmental stewardship. It has had an extensive pre-publication life that included performances by Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, the Christmas Revels, Village Harmony, and Northern Harmony.
