CHRISTMAS IS COMING | Canon in 4 voices | 4 singers a capella & score

EDITH NESBIT BLAND  |  Composer of the song | arranged as canon for four voices a capella |  parts & score
LYRICIST | unknown
FILE FORMAT: PDF | 300 dpi
RELEASE: final
SCORES: parts for the singers, one score with canon voices only, one full score  | 16 pages
COMMENTS: This edition of the famous Christmas song includes my adaption for four voices in musical form of a perfect canon. I have heard such a recording in the radio many years ago. It was an impressive interpretation, (a capella, as canon in four voices), but I never figured out which artists have sang the song and could never find such sheet music either. So I did it now myself and published it for 4 singers a capella (with optional background chord), or as an instrumental version for 4 cellos, or for 4 double basses. The most impressive could be this version for two female and two male voices, as the lyrics make the impression of the canon even stronger. The strongest effect would be achieved if additionnal 3-5 singers (or string instruments like violas, cellos, basses) would all the time keep singing or playing a chord without thirds (doodlesack-like effect) G-D-G in the background. One of the two scores includes also notation of the chord.
This is how a capella version of the song sounds like (with the background chord sang a capella):

This is how this edition sounds as an instrumental version for four double basses:

Please feel free to use my own recording of the G-D-G background chord in five voices (with double basses):
