We sing this in choir class to warm up our voices at Halloween time. We sometimes try to sing it in harmony with eight different voice parts. I really like to sing it but it is diffcult to hold some of the notes.
I can imagine it would be hard with 8 parts! I have only ever tried it with 4 parts -- think I'll try it with 8 and see what happens.

My piano student heard me play the first part (of the Pachelbel Canon) and immediately wanted to play it (and it was realistically achievable for her). Thank you! Regards, Tina
Shanette, US: I just purchased O Holy Nightto use as a duet for Christmas Eve Mass. Thank you so much for this simple, easy to read version as my vocalists are not professional and this music won't be quite so intimidating as other arrangements I have. Your expertise is much appreciated!! Merry Christmas!
