Clouds deep with snow - lit up from
Hurriedly tumbling past - It's Christmas!
Snowflakes falling fast suddenly frozen on the glass,
Slowing down to see inside:

And finding peace and love to comfort
your heart with contentment.
Let there be hope for all mankind.
Let there be love - It's Christmas

Snow silences the earth;
Heaven reveals the blessed birth,
angels shout with joy - It's
That blessed day has come, promising
each and everyone,
Words we hold inside:

(chorus 2)
Let there be peace on earth.
Let there be joy and contentment.
Let there be hope for all mankind.
Let there be love, love, love - It's Christmas time.

Let there be love.
Let there be peace.
Let there be hope.
Let there be joy.
Let there be peace.
Let there be peace.
Let there be peace.
It's Christmas time.

Right away I thought it was a Christmas song then boom!! it is! fantastic coincidence or serendipitous? Very good arrangement, love the stops, accents and ensemble figures. Even the breakdown (2:10ish) kind of 'stop time' is killin it!! And this is all programmed?? Are you kidding me??? All the sections are great, very supportive. You have a magical gift for hearing lines and sections on ALL instruments... sounds like a bunch of different players

Nothing better than a great Christmas song, especially done in the so well in the style of the old standards! Awesome lyrics, great vocal delivery backed up by terrific instrumentation! A job very well done.
