    Theme - Christmas, Santa Claus, anticipation, excitement


    Content - This catchy song captures the excited anticipation that a child feels on Christmas Eve and the hope that Christmas Day will bring everything that is hoped for:  Will Santa Claus have seen the note?   Will he leave a present in the Christmas stocking?

    Lyrics sample

    I hope the morning will bring something new.
    Will Santa Claus have seen the note I left him?
    And will he leave a present in my stocking?
    He’s wide awake like me.
    He knows that it must be
    A perfect day tomorrow.

    Let it be happy all day long.
    Let nothing end up going wrong.
    Let’s have a perfect day tomorrow.


    'A Perfect Day Tomorrow' comes from the musical 'Miracle Child'

    Time goes so fast, time goes so slow.
    Is it really two thousand years ago
    A baby lay in a stable
    Who still can move us so?
    A story begins, a story grows,
    For hundreds of lifetimes it flows:
    Across the world we remember
    That time so long ago when there were:

    Angels singing, shepherds praying,
    Kings all kneeling down to honour Him,
    Angels singing, shepherds praying,
    Kings all kneeling down to honour a child,
    A miracle child.

    _____________________

    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.
