What better time for children to sing than at "the most wonderful time of the year!" From the familiar, popular carols of years gone by, to the present popular styles of today's music, this collection of arrangements for kids is perfect for any and every occasion.
The beautiful guitar accompaniment for "Silent Night" will set the perfect stage for a beautiful Christmas Eve offering by children; upbeat and rock style tracks for "The Whole Story (Medley)" will provide the answer to opportunities to sing at the mall or in a pageant; and the gorgeous arrangement of "What Child Is This?" that provides the unique combination of an adult solo with children's choir will thrill any audience. Also includes original songs which explain the meaning of Christmas to singers and listeners alike.
