The 100 Voice Chorale based on the North Shore of Auckland commissioned Denise Hulford to write a Christmas Carol for the Choir. After spending some time searching for a poem with a happy tone to it, and not being able to find anything suitable, Denise commissioned Jenny Pattrick to write a poem. The poem that Jenny provided was exciting, accessible and quite humorous. The final work was a fun and Christmas focused composition which was most successful, and approximately the length of a short Cantata. The work has been performed a number of times, and has always been well received.
