The Age Old Reasong for Joy a new, free Christmas carol for everyone

I wrote "The Age Old Reason for Joy" as a wake-up call carol to teach the young and remind the older just what Christmas is really all about. Everything for learning and performance is available as free downloads from the dedicated page on my website. There is the SATB score in both portrait and landscape formats, a 2 part score for schools and young choristers, the words and accompaniment. One can also hear and see a performance via a YouTube link along with other musical options. Simply copy whatever you need to your computer and you're ready to start singing. It is great fun to sing and once learned will stay in one's mind. I'm told that it's traditional with a hint of folk, modern yet baroque with 'new' words and a great melody which is so catchy yet not kitsch.
