The rhythmic feel is so compelling that you’ve gotta move to the beat in this brilliant, contemporary Christmas work combining several traditional carols. Opening with an a cappella setting of the final phrases of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, it progresses to newly composed, spirited music in the gospel style that Mark Hayes is known for. Skillful scoring drives the piece to an impressive finish. Powerful!
