“The Twelve (Animated) Days of Christmas”
Date: June 9, 2014
Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
Everyone likes to have fun, and this new take on “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” with swipes at Tschaikovsky, Saint Säens, Gilbert & Sullivan and Ravel, skewered melodies of a few famous carols (“God Rest Ye” as an Irish jig?!), surprising key and time signature shifts, kazoos, tambourines and finger cymbals... This is definitely not your grandma’s “Twelve Days.”
For more advanced choruses. Running time: 6 min. Score: 14 pages.
