  • Stars On Snow: a lyrical piece describing the winter night with the shimmer of stars on the snow as seen from a bedroom window.
  • Et In Terra Pax: And on Earth, peace to all.
  • A Winter Noel: Welcome in the winter season! Come gather, be of good cheer. Let music fill the festive air.
  • Gingerbread House: Hilarious song with jazzy accompaniment. Describes all kinds of houses but none as cool as a gingerbread house.

You’ve Got Male will sing:

  • Hodie: Beautiful, rich harmonies in easy to learn Latin with a little O Come All ye Faithful woven into the song.
  • We Three Kings: A jazzy syncopated version with doo-waps in the middle.
  • Do You Know The Way To Bethlehem? A syncopated song about the journey, the baby, shepherds, angels and heavenly light.
  • Rejoice! A medley of several familiar Christmas favorites!
  • Nutcracker Jingles: Many variations on the Jingle Bells theme put to the music of the Nutcracker Suite. Lots of laughs!

The two groups will combine to sing:

  • Joyful and Triumphant: A medley of four familiar Christmas songs!
  • Canticle of Peace: Beautiful winter song of peace, where light overcomes dark and peace and love reign.
  • Gloria: A bit of Angels We Have Heard on High but mostly a series of dramatic Glorias building to a finale!
  • Sing, Mary, Sing: A bouncing delightful number. Mary, the baby, shepherds and angels.
  • The Yearning: A powerful heart-wrenching song for the coming of Emmanuel.
  • Children Go Tell It On the Mountain: A fun partner song with “Children Go Where I Send Thee” and “Go Tell It On the Mountain”.
  • Canticle of Winter: A tribute to winter. A portrait breaks forth in harmony. Calming spirit and inner peace.
