On this song, Youth Choir is joining into Freedom Choir’s normal arrangement. It’s a little trickier than singing with Youth Choir alone, as there are some times where Freedom Choir sings, but Youth Choir does not. Generally, Youth Choir sings what the Freedom Choir sopranos sing, but that doesn’t mean that every time the FC sopranos are singing, YC is singing.
The audio below plays the Youth Choir parts using a piano sound, where all the Freedom Choir parts use an “Ah Choir” sound.
This song will be performed by Youth Choir with piano accompaniment on this song, with a short introduction before Youth Choir sings. I’ve not included that in the audio here, as it will be simple enough for the Choir to come in as directed.
Infant Holy, Infant Lowly
