Donkey On A Journey
Donkey On A Journey by Ruth Kenward & Caroline Kimber - 7 to 10 yrs
Theme – Nativity, Mary rides a donkey from Galilee to Bethlehem, Christmas
Content – a very hooky donkey song that is always popular with this age group, because the lyrics tell the story so vividly, the melody is so catchy and the backing arrangement is so appealing. This song also refers to the old legend of animals kneeling down in the stable to honour Jesus’ birth. There's an easy and attractive key change half way through the song, with a simple one-note link to help singers move confidently into the new key.
‘Donkey On A Journey’ is taken from the Nativity musical ‘A Way In A Manger’
