1. Listen to this version “Silent Night” compare the style you hear and our version.
The version of “Silent Night”, which was written by Carl Fisher, was a little bit faster than how we sing it in our choir room.

Other than the rhythmic differences, much of the styles are the same. Just as we do in our choir, the blend is pretty much the same as ours and the blend. The altos and sopranos always echo the guys section well in tune and our choir was good at this as well.

The first night we arrived in the Dominican we went to eat at a restaurant, there were five gentlemen singing and one man was using a cheese grader and a whisk to
