Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus (STB) – Deadline Fri 12/17 – EXTENDED 

This arrangement is from the Sacred Harp, an early American shape-note singing tradition. The harmony is rough, and the melody is in the middle voice (tenor). It should be strongly rhythmic and enthusiastic–not beautiful and note-perfect. The videos show the words and music. Feel free to record the melody in the normal soprano octave, as well as the tenor if you can reach it.

Away in a Manger – unison – Deadline Mon 12/20

O Little Town of Bethlehem (trio) – Deadline Mon 12/20 

See, Amid the Winter’s Snow (SATB) – Deadline Mon 12/20

What Child is This (SAB) – Deadline Mon 12/20
