Come and discover Alain Fromy's Christmas collection:

These 29 harmonized Christmas carols with mixed voices are suitable for a constituted choir as well as for a small group that gathers for an occasional concert. The pieces are beautiful and simple, festive and collected, in tune with the mood of the season.
The repertoire is traditional, but you will certainly discover lesser-known songs that will delight both singers and audience.
The ancient Christmas songs from the different regions of France, beyond an often tasty language, are a true theological summary within the reach of simple people. They evoke the Incarnation which necessarily leads to the cross and thus to the Redemption of sinful man.
Harmonized in a simple way, they are easily integrated into a preparation for Christmas concerts.
Most of them were sung during the concert by the audience itself which, divided into 3 desks (SAH), quickly learns the 3 voices and sings with the choristers, to the great joy of all.
Christmas is about sharing, and the concert is not just about the choristers singing in front of the audience: it is all together that they sing the coming of the Son of God.
