For more than five years, Phil Barfoot has consulted with music ministries across America to create choral collections that meet their stylistic and ministry needs. If you’ve performed Portraits, Colors, Treasures, The Spirit, or The Glory, you’ll find a new favorite in this latest work, The Joy of Christmas. With genres ranging from a Broadway-style opener, to powerful ballads and fun blues, Dave Williamson’s energetic and practical arrangements make it impossible to hear or sing this Christmas collection without a smile on your face. A soulful celebration of classics with inventive musical twists, The Joy of Christmas is high-energy fun mixed with warm-fuzzy, reflective moments.
