With all the hustle and bustle of last minute Christmas shopping, baking, house cleaning, wrapping, and preparing for the big day, I thought I’d keep today’s post short and sweet.
There’s nothing I love more at Christmas time than singing Christmas carols. My kids have finally gotten old enough to read music and sing harmonies, so sitting in church on a pew where I can hear all four parts thrills my soul. My husband sings bass, my oldest son (14) sings tenor, I switch between soprano and alto, though my daughter (16) has really enjoyed reading the alto lines lately, so I usually let her take that part. My youngest (12) is just starting to learn to read music, so he usually follows whoever is singing next to him. He wants so badly to sing the bass like his daddy, but his voice hasn’t changed yet, so we’re a couple years away from that.
Being a band nerd in high school and a choir girl in college, I love tight harmonies. And nowhere are these harmonies better displayed than in A Capella music. And with the revival of voice-only groups, I have rediscovered the joy of A Capella arrangements of Christmas carols. I’ve included a couple below for you to enjoy. Have a blessed Christmas!
And as a bonus, just because it was too fun not to include . . .
