I wrote this arrangement of Silent Night for the William Chunestudy Men's Chorus in 2010. It was performed at their Christmas concert in Fallbrook, CA that year. In this performance, I hoped to create a convincing mock-up of the piece using the "men" of the EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Choirs. Only the first verse and chorus are rendered in this performance. I hope you enjoy!
Perhaps a word about the video is in order. In a primitive animation--hastily prepared in iClone 5.5 and demonstrating what can be "accomplished" with poor lip syncing and absolutely no interesting camera angles--eight "men" of the EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Choirs "sing" an arrangement of Silent Night for TTBB chorus. Someone should tell these guys to stand still rather than shift their weight all the time from side-to-side.
