Unique, accessible to all ages, and stunningly beautiful describes this arrangement of the beloved carol. Incorporating the use of American Sign Language throughout, the piece begins in German sung by a soloist, then by the choir, singing then in English, then with “oos” and finally only “singing” with American Sign Language, filling the room with silent splendor. It is truly a work that will become a tradition for your choir. The ASL vocabulary is included in the choral.
