This Piece Would Program Well With: An A Cappella Christmas, Vol. 2 by Jay Rouse available at PraiseGathering.com
Beautiful, rich, approachable harmony, a lovely text, excellent tension and release, attention to matters of prosidy, what more do could you ask for? The Holy Night will fit as the showcase piece for a younger choir or alongside any of the best masterworks of the late 20th century for a more experienced ensemble.
