Hark, the Herald Angels Sing: Merry Christmas 2013

In the spirit of previous audio Christmas Cards, this year I present a new recording of Hark, the Herald Angels Sing.

During the week of school before Christmas break, I try to take an hour or two to record an audio Christmas card.  If you missed it, check out the recordings from 2011 and 2012.  This year’s installment is Hark, the Herald Angels Sing.  This time, I went for a fairly straightforward vocal jazz TTBB arrangement.  Sheet music will be available soon.

Hear it on YouTube or download the mp3 for free below, and share with your friends. Merry Christmas!

I have been playing around with recording software, and I made this audio Christmas card for visitors to my site.  Thank you for supporting my music by performing it around the world and making donations to maintain this site.  I am truly blessed that so many talented strangers around the globe choose to bring my music to life.

Link to download the mp3 is below the video.
