What You Gonna Call

a cappella SATB - traditional - arr. Peter Amidon

In the Amidon's book "Fifty-five Anthems for the Small Church Choir". Sung here by the Starry Mountain Singers. This song was a show-stopper as sung alone, a cappella, slow and poignant, by Keith F. Moore at the Washington DC Revels a few years ago. Peter did this arrangement for the Guilford (VT) Community Church's annual Youth (ages 12-22) Midnight (well, ending at midnight) Christmas Eve Service Singers.

LYRICS
traditional

What you gonna call your pretty little baby
Mmmm, pretty little baby,
Mmmm, pretty little baby,
Glory be to the new born King.

Some call him one thing,
I think I'll call him "Emmanuel"
Mmmm, pretty little baby,
Mmmm, pretty little baby,
Glory be to the new born King.

If you follow that star you'll surely find the baby.
Mmmm, surely find the baby,
Mmmm, surely find the baby,
Glory be to the new born King.
