Notably, this arrangement is not an arrangement of the Frederic Austin arrangement. The public domain song is a new dope hip-hop arrangement of the 1780 English Carol Christmas Carol 12 Days of Christmas. It has been modified completely in style, genre, instrumentation, and presentation. It is arranged in the key of A minor. Musically, it has also been arranged completely as a hip-hop rap song with appropriate clean urban flavor added with solo rap and choral rap support and audience participation with claps and stomps done by audience choral members, plus rhythm supplied by studio drum set with deep hip-hop rhythm, plus female beatbox, and male beatbox musical options included if choral director chooses to add that additional hip-hop flavor, plus tubular chime instrument used throughout to provide haunting holiday hip-hop flavor on the DL. The lyrics are clean and suitable for high school choral groups. Additional support lyrics are added to support rap soloist. The tempo and style has been changed to Cool Swag with quarter = 110.Overall, this is a new fun reimagined rendition of an old classic that high school students and their audiences should also find quite enjoyable. Choreographer should also find this to be a refreshing new project to choreograph.
The next song in Holiday Hip-Hop Music Collection is Jingle Bells Hip-Hop Rap.
