A simple, gorgeous carol, showing how Jesus and his family gave welcome to strangers, were welcomed as refugees, and how we should do the same. Creative Commons license as part of #choirsagainstracism. If you’d like to make a donation to charity for the use of this piece, please click here.
The wonderful Inverness NYCoS choir directed by John Thomson have recorded it below:
Premiered 4th Dec by Dingwall & District Choral Society, conducted by John Thomson – read the review here! “The evening finished with a new work by Edinburgh-based composer Chris Hutchings. Part of a project entitled “Choirs Against Racism”, the Welcome Carol was both catchy, enjoyable and meaningful.”
Difficulty level: very easy. Could be learned in a few minutes by ear. Piano part is slightly trickier.
