Love Shone Down – Resources PackView Young Voices's Full Store
We are delighted that we have secured permission to put this wonderful Christmas song on Choir Community. Far and away the most requested song ever for repeat performances at Young Voices, this song has now travelled the world and is a favourite in many schools. Once the title song of a collection of Modern Carols arranged by Craig 30 years ago, it is only otherwise available on a Boyce and Stanley Album which Craig also produced. Its combination of catchy tune and entrancing narrative puts every child at the heart of the Christmas Story and is a certain hit with any choir. Suitable for key stage 1 too!
This complete resources pack aimed for school choirs contains the choral score with chord symbols for the accompaniment, together with a learning audio track, high quality backing track and also lyrics sheet. Just one copy of this pack provides a licence to use all the resources for a single school or choir.
Dear Piers We used your arrangement of "Love Shone Down" for our Year 5 & 6 students' Christmas presentation – what a gorgeous song! We did not use the backing track for the performance – all our performances are live; we added six flutists (in 2 parts) to the beginning, middle and end sections and we added a drum kit and wind chimes; we used a soloist for verse 2. I was sad that there was no piano score available for this arrangement, this was the only thing that could be improved; luckily we managed to flesh out the chords – other pianists might have struggled with this. There were some chord symbols written on the score which, I felt once they were swapped to a different chord, sounded better: i.e. D chord sounded better than a G chord : bars 22, 46, and we inserted a big crescendo in the 4 repetitions of Love Shone Down, building the tension going into the alleluia's – this was really effective – and you might like to add this more explicitly to the score. Lastly, it would have been helpful to provide the lyrics separately – just would've saved me a job of typing them up! Otherwise this was a great song and we all loved it – thank you. Nicky Footer
