    (Chorus from Gaspard's Christmas)

  • Peters Edition Limited (World)

A 3.5-minute song which perfectly expresses the joy of Christmas. With words by writer and broadcaster Zeb Soanes, and music by Jonathan Dove, this piece, for unison voices (or solo voice) and piano, is taken from the final movement of Gaspard’s Christmas, for narrator and orchestra, in which a friendly fox (called Gaspard) entertains young concert-goers with a musical tale that captures the excitement of Christmas.
