The Twelve days of Christmas in Song – Day 10 continues with ‘Amen’.
‘Amen’ is today’s song.
Also, sometimes referred to as ‘This Little Light of Mine.’
It is a joyful song with an infectious rhythm.
Moreover, it is always well received by our audiences, whatever the occasion.
Furthermore, this rousing gospel tune features in the repertoire of many male voice choirs.
This Little Light of Mine Composer
Harry Dixon Loes (1892–1965), a well-known Christian hymn writer, is credited with writing ‘This Little Light of Mine,’ around 1920 with Avis Christiansen.
Loes, who studied at the Moody Bible Institute and the American Conservatory of Music, was a musical composer and teacher.
He also co-wrote several other gospel songs.
The song has since entered the folk tradition.
Furthermore, our choral arrangement is by Geraint Roberts, well-known choral conductor in north Wales.
The piano arrangement is by north Wales stalwart Annette Bryn Parri.
