Gospel Carol: Come and See the Little Child (SATB or S(S)A)

This lively gospel carol features a straight-forward SATB (or S(S)A or unison) refrain with verses that may be sung by a variety of voicings: solo, SA or TB, Women/Men or unison. Due to the fullness of the piano accompaniment (difficulty: medium) the entire piece may be sung effectively in UNISON. The tender carol, recalling the Christmas story of the birth of Jesus in the manger, the shepherds, the three kings, the star… will bring the spirit of Christmas to all who hear and sing it this special season.
