Herald the joy of the Christmas season with this delightful medley by Mark Hayes. Opening with bell-like chords, it quickly segues into an energetic call-and-response as all of heaven and nature sings the news. Flowing quickly and easily through a sumptuous series of key changes, the medley incorporates phrases of beloved traditional carols, including O Sanctissima (the Sicilian Mariner's Hymn) and In dulci jubilo (Good Christians All, Rejoice). The festive original music returns, rising to a brilliant finish as all exclaim, The Lord is come! For a multigeneration celebration, children's and/or youth choirs can sing along. Larger choirs will rejoice in Mark's festive orchestration for woodwinds, brass and percussion. Smaller choirs will love the smaller orchestration for 2 trumpets and handbells.
