The World For Christmas

Less than a week until Christmas. What do you want from Santa?

The Real Group is asking for the right thing in Anders Edenroth’s “The World For Christmas.”

…hear the unspoken wish from a tiny, tiny dot:
“I only want the world for Christmas,
the blue-green, forever turning world for Christmas,
nothing more, and nothing less,
I want it for keeps and I promise to share,
so that everyone who wants can cuddle and care.
I only want the world for Christmas,
the blue-green, forever turning world for Christmas,
To restore, to repossess: please make it last,
my fate is in your hands.
Oh give me a present for the future.”

This piece is now in print; consider programming it next year with your ensemble.
