Please enjoy this lovely carol from Ukraine. There is a great tradition of carol singing in Ukraine. In old times, people rehearsed for weeks ahead and dressed in costumes (including one person dressed as a goat!). The group walked along, stopping at each house to ask if they could enter and sing. If the answer was yes, a special song was sung for each person in the house.
This arrangement is great for intermediate level pianists of all ages. It is perfect for correlating music into social studies projects etc, as well as, for world music themed programs, camps, and activities. Lyrics and Information on the traditions of Ukraine are included.
This song is also included in the volume of carols from around the world, Passports: Christmas.
