Music for Advent and Christmas

Bookmark and Share

    Carey Landry and Carol Jean Kinghorn, composers of some of the most popular music for children and for liturgy over the past 35 years, have created their first Christmas collection! Designed for adult choirs, childrens choirs, liturgical celebrations, liturgies with children and catechetical moments, How Beautiful Is the Child offers 14 wonderful songs for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. The collection opens with "Season Full of Promise," a delightful round for childrens choir, and "Waiting in Silence," a hauntingly beautiful Advent hymn. Other highlights include Careys arrangement of his classic hymn "Hail Mary: Gentle Woman" and "Silent Night" to form a beautiful medley; an innovative setting of the traditional hymn "The Friendly Beasts," which children will love; and several pieces in which the adult choir and the childrens choir sing together. From energetic music for children to more contemplative hymns for adults, Carey and Carol Jean have included songs in a variety of musical styles, both contemporary and traditional.
