Call the Baby Jesus (New Edition)

by Michael Barrett & Joseph M. Martin

This anthem from the cantata Sing a Song of Christmas is an absolute joy to hear and sing! Set in an infectious call-and-response format, this quickly learned octavo fills a happy Advent niche in your progression to Christmas. The versatile selection could incorporate a solo with choral response and could even be useful with an antiphonal or multigenerational concept. Add a little percussion pattern (shaker, egg, etc.) and this good-natured gospel takes on an island feel.
