A breath of fresh air for Advent or Christmas Eve! This captivating arrangement by Jean Anne Shafferman of a traditional African melody exudes a feeling of joyous anticipation. Lively syncopation, choral call-and-response and alternating measures of duple and triple rhythms add to the excitement. Strains of traditional carols can be heard in the flute obbligato (opt. flute and drum parts included). Also perfect for the Annunciation of Mary.
