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 About Us Lies the Summer Night [level: Medium]
Brad Nix
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1076 | duration: 4:20 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: piano
The text speaks of nature, but ends on a religious note as poet Robert Louis Stevenson finds in the glow of the sky the symbol of the promise of Heavenly light. Elegant with great melodic interest, a dramatic climax, and an artistic piano accompaniment, this seasonal piece could find a home in both a concert and church setting.

voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1015 | duration: 4:35 | price: $1.95

Cover Fire, Burn Bright [level: Medium]
Joan Szymko | Sharon Hansen Choral Series
voicing: SSA | catalog number: SBMP 988 | duration: 2:30 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: piano
This sprightly piece celebrates something we all love on a cold winter’s day: the crackling logs in the fireplace. A traditional folk poem from the English West Country provided the text. A colorful piano accompaniment adds great interest to the clever melodic realization of the text as it describes the various kinds of logs and how they react when lit.

Allen Koepke
voicing: SATB div. | catalog number: SBMP 1033 | duration: c. 4:00 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: a cappella
This is not your garden variety Lo How a Rose! In eight parts much of the time, it innocently begins, and dramatically ends, with four treble soloists. The main structure of the piece is antiphonal, the men alternating with the women, A stunning arrangement, this would be a fine centerpiece for a Christmas concert.

Cover Oracle of Spring [level: Medium]
Mari Esabel Valverde | International Orange Chorale Choral Series
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1081 | duration: 2:30 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: a cappella
The “oracle” is a lively bird, very active in announcing the arrival of spring through its song. Madrigal-like in style, contemporary in feeling, set to a text by Goethe, this is a fine addition to the seasonal literature befitting spring.

Spring
[level: Medium]
Joshua Shank | Daniel Hughes Choral Series
voicing: SATB div. | catalog number: SBMP 1184 | duration: 4:10 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: a cappella
Dramatically combining two Sara Teasdale poems, the composer has painted an enlightened statement on the spirit of spring. No bird calls in this, rather it might best be called a tone poem for singers.

Cover Toboggan! [level: Medium]
Mona Lyn Reese | Daniel Hughes Choral Series
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1038 | duration: 2:10 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: flute or treble recorder
A classy piece, it was created with great whimsy reflective of the theme as the vocal lines occasionally have a downhill slide. The grace notes of the flute or recorder enhance the dance-like rhythms. Toboggan is a worthy novelty number or encore for a winter program.

Cover We Sing of Golden Mornings [level: Easy]
Neil Ginsberg
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 525 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: piano
text by Ralph Waldo Emerson. If singing makes you feel good, singing this song will make you feel even better. The text speaks of only positive things, and the musical setting is upbeat and joyous. A great song for spring.

voicing: Unison | catalog number: SBMP 107 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: piano
A charming unison setting of the Christina Rossetti poem that would appeal to any age group.

Cover Wisdom (It was a night of early spring) [level: Medium]
Ryan O’Connell | Jo-Michael Scheibe Choral Series
voicing: SATB | catalog number: SBMP 1083 | duration: 3:20 | price: $1.95
accompaniment: a cappella
A beautiful setting of a Sara Teasdale text that describes spring as something more profound than just flowers and birds that sing. It leaves us with a bit of philosophical insight, and would provide a nice contrast for a spring program.
