Product Description

Betelehemu Arranged by Jonatha Crutchfield. For SATB. Published by Mark Foster Music Co. (Catalog # 35002015, UPC: 747510055754)

A unique and exciting Christmas offering for school or church use! Jonathan Crutchfield has taken a Youruban folk text and arranged it for SATB voices with a brief soprano solo and some very interesting percussion parts. “Betelehemu” gets its intense rhythms from African drumming techniques. This electric a cappella crowd-pleaser lends itself easily to choreography, and is extremely effective any time multicultural emphasis is desired. The demo recording heard here is by the First Baptist Church Sanctuary Choir, Huntsville, Alabama, directed by Harry Wooten.
