On a Christmas Long Ago
From the DeFord household to you and yours, happy Christmas!
Each year I try to do a “Christmas Card Carol” to give away in lieu of fudge or cookies. (That’s because you don’t want my cookery. Trust me.) I never seem to get them done in time to be useful for the current year, and this year’s is no exception. So…
Here on Christmas Eve Eve (is that a thing?) is this year’s carol, “On a Christmas Long Ago.” The recording features vocals by my dear friend James Loynes.
Here’s a video of the same track. (It’s just the lyrics on a background… my imagination ran out about when the week did.)
The only score is solo voice–for now. I’ll probably do a choir arrangement for next year, and add the obbligato score then.
May your Christmas be joyful,
and may your new year
be filled with love and hope and peace.

Thank you isn’t enough. You are an angel left on earth to bring part of heaven to us who find your beautiful music, love it and love you. i also would be interest in a choir arrangement next year and the obbligato score. you are a BLESSING to my life! I love your creative talent that you share…and I Love you.
Beautiful. You mentioned you might do a choir arrangement next year and add the obbligato score. Have you done that yet?
May I pretty please get the obligato part to On a Christmas Long Ago? So beautiful. We’d like to add cello to the song for our church’s Christmas concert. I’m hoping I don’t have to “make it up”. Thank you!!
The background music was all improv–unfortunately, there is no score for it. 🙁
Has this song been written for TTB?
IF you can find the time, please do arrange this for SATB w/ obligato in time for next Christmas 2018. Along with our small ward choir, I also sing with a county community choir; conducted by retired choral instructor. This song would be perfect for the Xmas concert. We will also prepare a Spring concert, to be performed in May, 2018. I will be scrolling through your inventory first.
Thank you, Sally, for your lovely devotion to music. You inspire all of us.
Could I get this song Written TTB?
I would love it!
This is beautiful! Do you have parts for it yet?
