As a former church music director, I know what it feels like to look at your upcoming calendar and realize that you need to quickly fill a spot or two for the Advent or Christmas season. With that in mind, here are five of my Advent and Christmas pieces (ranging from unison/soloist to SATB choir)- complete with recordings and sheet music.
Special thanks to vocalist Sarah Kervin for singing all three parts on the brand new gospel choir track of Comfort Ye.
Deanna’s Advent/Christmas music:
Comfort Ye: The classic 17th-century Advent text, “Comfort, Comfort Ye My People”in an original three-part (SAT) gospel/R&B setting. Choral/piano score and lead sheet.
Love Came Down: Original gospel/funk unison setting of the Christina Rossetti poem, “Love Came Down at Christmas.” Piano/vocal score and lead sheet.
We Three Kings: Swinging jazz instrumental trio arrangement. Piano score and lead sheet.
