    _____________________

    Theme - Christmas, joy, excitement, birth of Jesus

    _____________________

    Content - This deliciously Christmassy ballad that combines the ‘feel’ of a contemporary winter celebration with the recollection of the birth of Jesus thousands of years ago. The first verse focuses upon Christmas decorations, streets full of people doing their Christmas shopping and the sound of carols in the air, but also reminds us to think of that first Christmas in a stable far away.  The second verse reverses the thinking, beginning with the events at Bethlehem, then coming back to the present day, with Christmas trees, Christmas cake, and the conclusion that it's a time to give thanks for all God's blessings.

    The lovely harmony parts and Christmassy feel make this song particularly suitable for choir use.

    Tell Me A Story

    Tell Me A Story by Ruth Kenward - 7 to 11 yrs - KS2  (2m 33s)

    _________________________________

    Theme - Christmas, stories, Santa Claus, nativity

    _________________________________

    Content - What stories do we tell at Christmas?  The song begins with stories of Santa Claus and then moves on to tv shows full of tinsel and celebrities, but ends with a complete contrast: a quiet stable on a starlit night. ‘No tinsel there at all. Tell me the story that I need to know.’  An unusual approach for a Christmas song - and very effective. With optional harmonies, this makes a good addition to repertoire for school choir.

    This song also features in the songbook 'Come On Christmas'
