Description/Remarks


This Christmas spiritual is cleverly packaged in a new, hip and jazzy arrangement that is part laid-back Swingle Singers, part rousing Gospel choir. It will challenge your singers' abilities, especially their sense of dance and swing, but once learned this arrangement is unforgettable and unmatched.

"An exciting and quite challenging arrangement of the familiar text and tune. Rich, jazz-inspired harmonies, carefully scripted syncopations, and a couple of tricky modulations, will keep everyone on their toes, but could well also bring a congregation to its feet.”  – The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians

  Text

Go Tell It On The Mountain

Spiritual, 19th cent. 

Refrain

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere;   
Go tell it on the mountain,  
That Jesus Christ is born!

While shepherds kept their watching 
O’er silent flocks by night, 
Behold, throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light. 

Refrain

The shepherds feared and trembled 
When lo! above the earth
Rang out the angel chorus  
That hailed our Savior’s birth. 

R
efrain

Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born,
And God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn. 

Refrain
