Joseph Dearest, Joseph Mine

(click the title to view and hear online)


This work was arranged by Walter Ehret, at taolented and prolific arranger of choral music in American music education.  He arranged for most of the major publishers over a 50 year period. 

The voicing for this traditional German Carol is S, A/C, C/B.   Those boys whose voices have just begun to change may be happier singing Part II which is better suited to their range.  Optional notes have been added to Part III to accommodate boys for whom the comfortable singing range is either too high or too low. 

You may choose to access the three-part variable voicing charts to view voicing options.
